MAD Architects reveals its collaboration with Olivari at The Milan Design Week. “Marilyn,” a door handle designed by Ma Yansong is a nod to the pair of residential buildings, designed by MAD in 2006 and nick-named “The Marilyn Monroe Towers” by the local residents of Mississauga, Canada due to their elegant curvature.


“A door handle is very symbolic to me. It is the first object that one will interact with before entering a new space.” said MAD founder and principal Ma Yansong. “Therefore, we wanted the design to be smooth and organic so when your hand closes around it, it feels familiar and natural, even if it is the first time you touch it.”
