After the DNA Paris Design Awards 2022 and the selection for the Frame Awards 2022, the Gemmy door handle by Manital, designed by Mario Mazzer and Giovanni Crosera, obtains the Good Design® Award 2022 in the "Hardware" category.

With great satisfaction, the Brescia-based company receives the news of this prestigious international award born in 1950 on the initiative of Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and organized by the "Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies".

Gemmy's success is due to its curved and slightly rounded lines, which evoke the large mooring cleats and soft shapes of the icons of the 50s, especially the Porsche 356.
Furthermore, its peculiarity of joining base and body in a single harmonious shape is much appreciated: the rosette, thanks to a technical solution designed by Manital, becomes a single component with the connection between lever and door, integrating perfectly into the silhouette with a language that appears familiar and offers a tactile appeal to the hand.
The white, chrome, satin chrome, satin nickel, matt bronze, matt dark bronze, black finishes enhance the shape and invite you to grip the handle.

The award is all the more significant considering that this year the organizers received a record number of applications from companies and designers from over 55 countries.
