The Planet was born at a time when the squared handle model had not yet appeared on the market as a protagonist. I was attracted by the idea of creating a inear and seemingly sharp-edged handlel that in reality felt soft to the grip, with imperceptibly curved surfaces and an ideal proportion of volumes in terms of aesthetics and functionality.

From this came a rectangular section, softened by rounded edges, which not only improves the ergonomics, but also facilitates the handle’s producibility by moulding.

Now, after many years of production, it is a source of pride to see how it has become a reference model among handles, to the extent that it is used in many important instances of contemporary architecture. — Luca Casini
