“Handling architecture”: the project

To involve architects who had never – or seldom – focused on product design, inviting them to create a handle. This was the challenge formulated by Dnd in 2018 – based on an idea of Giulio Iacchetti, the company art director – and suggested to five architecture firms with an Italian background very active on an international level: Stefano Boeri Architetti, Alfonso FemiaMaurizio Varratta, Cino Zucchi and 967arch.
