LOTUS by Javier Lopez
As a young designer, Javier Lopez introduced himself to the Olivari brothers by proposing a handle so minimal, it almost disappeared. The idea won them over immediately, and they enthusiastically lent their support to develop it.
It wasn’t easy. The thin profile of the lever needed to enter into a relationship with the thickness of the rose.
"By joining the forms and surfaces along the horizontal plane in the most fluid way possible, we succeeded in designing a handle that we could describe as being quasi non-existent." - Javier Lopez
