The Uovo (Italian for “egg”) is the brainchild of Ambrogio Olivari. We needed a small knob with an elegant shape. To obtain it, as the name reveals, he simply used an egg. To produce it, we cast it using shell moulding with a sand core, a technique that allowed us to achieve a large exterior surface and a hollow body.
