In their imagining an object functional to the gesture of gripping a lever to trigger an action that transforms the space by opening or closing, Franco Albini and Franca Helg designed a handle with the lightness of a bird’s wing, and the profile of a flower.‎ They travelled a road directed toward the expression of organic shapes.‎ The Agata handle reflects their keen search for a point of equilibrium between one thing and its opposite – between a sensual organic mood and geometric linearity; between solidity and lightness; between a precise graphic mark and the volumetric consistency of the material.‎ All the typical qualities of Albini and Helg’s experimentation with form are recognisable in this small object proportioned to the scale of a hand: making the material lighter; the search for fluid lines; slender geometric shapes; a certain propensity for tapered forms; exactitude; and subtle elegance that is modern and classic at the same time.‎ Among ergonomic handles, this is a classic of good Italian design.‎

Finishes: bright chrome, satin chrome, supergold bright
