I have always admired F.A. Porsche’s work – not just his cars, but also the many useful objects he designed. He expressed himself in a strong, highly original line that was sometimes almost provocative.
His personality shines through in the Alexandra door handle, where he overturned the usual mechanism we use. Generally, the rose is fixed to the door, but here, it rotates as a solid whole with the entire handle.

It was a real challenge for us to develop the special pieces to marry the precision of this invention’s functioning with the lightness of his slim, flowing line. — Antonio Olivari
