Tezze sul Brenta, March 12th 2013. Selected among 4662 products of 19 different categories by an international jury of 37 members, the handle Elica has been awarded in the category “product design” for its original, elegant and functional design. pba is proud to have been honoured with a prize for a product of design for all.
“The forms we imagine, develop and produce for a ‘life without barriers’ can be considered a success only if they are understood to be for everyone to live spaces comfortably and not for a particular category of user.” Francesca Masiero Vice President pba S.p.A.
Thanks to its unique design, the Elica stainless steel handle, designed for pba by Jérôme Brunet of Paris studio Brunet Saunier Architecture, grants an excellent grip even for people with reduced hand mobility. The flat upper part with a generous surface area and curved ends avoids accidental hooking and makes vertical movements easier for people in wheelchairs.
