Among the main lines Flash, Polare, Tosca, Linda, Riva all available in the classic Manital finishes: brass, bronzed, chrome, nickel.

To us handles are a very important detail, an element that allows the door to be opened and closed. A small but essential component that Manital transforms “From an opening tool to a precious piece of furniture for architecture …” (Luigi Bigoloni). What better challenge then than to propose classic door handles, to pay tribute to timeless handles?

A combination of formal design and functional design.

Style Collection

The Manital Handle Style collection is perfect for lovers of more traditional, elegant lines, perhaps for antique door handle style.

Among our classic handles you can find different models like Valencia, Mary, Barocco, Plaza and the new classic collection born in the Manital family: Fenice.

The two main models are Victoria and York, perfect for those with a penchant for antique door handle style!

Victoria recalls the lines of the Victorian style, with precious inlays and ornamental motifs available in the classic Manital finishes and in addition in the new shaded bronzed black, red French gold, green French gold, red French silver, ivory gold gradient.

York, on the other hand, recalls the neoclassical style thanks to the rigorous and rational lines of the octagonal shape that characterizes the handle and rosette. York is available in classic Manital finishes and in polished and satin-finished copper.

Hygge, on the other hand, was awarded with the Red Dot Design Award 2018 and stands out for its minimal and linear design, characterized by a thin, dynamic and slender line that fits perfectly in contemporary style doors and windows.

Special Collections

Among Manital most famous  special door handles in the world, certainly include Giava and Athena.

The former can be defined as the elegant and timeless handle present at the Radisson Royal Hotel in Moscow best luxury business hotel in the world.

The second, instead, is the result of the creed of the two designers who planned the year, Maurizio Giordano and Roberto Grossi, that is “the image and the substance can coincide in all their work”. This meant that Athena was even used inside the Burj Khalifa of Dubai.

This is because the circular objects and the curved lines, soft and rounded, are reassuring and welcoming.

Many of our handles, in fact, enhance these shapes making them contemporary and essential.
