Sometimes I think my work contains a paradox.‎ Although I usually approach architecture as an industrial designer, over the course of my career I have not designed many industrial products.‎ The handle for Olivari is an exception.‎ The intersection between architecture and design is not exactly the source of my inspiration; rather it is the simplicity of the shape.‎ At first glance, the handle seems ultra elementary.‎ An element with an elliptical section comes forward from a circular rose.‎ At one fourth of the length of the handle, it bends by 90 degrees to form the grip, maintaining its elliptical section.‎ The handle ends sliced neatly by 45 degrees, revealing a cut with a circular shape.‎ This is the circular core implicit in the ellipse.‎ I was inspired by the art of tameshigiri, the challenging Japanese art of cutting with a sword.‎ I attempted to imitate that way of revealing the essence of an object at one fell swoop, an instantaneous act that in many traditional Japanese arts is a symbol of beauty.‎ It requires a steady hand and a clear mind.‎ Shigeru Ban
