100 YEARS OF OLIVARI HANDLES
A Brand You Can Trust
Olivari Handles have been trusted by many world’s top renowned Architects and Designers for their quality and refine finishes that last a long time. The entire manufacturing cycle takes place at the Olivari factoty in Borgomanero (Italy). The door handles go through a precise sequence of fabrication phases: hot forging and shearing, polishing, galvanic deposition, physical vapour deposition and laser marking. All technical components – whether resin or steel – are moulded and assembled inside Olivari factory. Every phase of the production cycle undergoes meticulous inspection to guarantee constant quality and elevated performance.
Olivari’s identity was shaped over the course of time, based on the kind of very tight collaboration between architects and industry that has been the historical base of Italian manufacturing. To listen to the genesis of the many projects and encounters that led to such a great number of products is an extraordinary overview of all possible design approaches. It shows how a simple object with the function of opening and closing a door can be interpreted with facinating inventiveness,
generating infinite different solutions. These multiple approaches describe how the fertile bond between Olivari and its designers has always been renewed in fresh forms of expressivity. It tells of Olivari’s curiosity and interest in working with designers, and how the company has consistently and respectfully established relations with them, seeking to interpret in the best way their ideas and wishes, sharing the passion of good design and work well done.
