We develop our main themes: door and window handles, pull handles and locking pull handles, balustrades, modular ischiatic seats and all the accessories for a “life without barriers”, with the firm belief that objects reflect a space, embody its attitude, illusions and possibilities. We know that bringing a new form into the world can affect the life of everyone.
