In April 2014, Equip-Design unveiled 5 notable designer handles by renowned Italian brand Fusital at their showroom at Plaza Singapura (Singapore). Guests savoured a fine Italian menu and wine list by Chef Osvaldo Forlino of No Menu Restaurant. In attendance was a representative from the Italian Chamber of Commerce Singapore.
The Fusital brand, in the market since 1976, offers handles designed with the collaboration of the most important Italian and foreign architects, like Norman Foster, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid. Fusital was the first Italian brand to propose contemporary design in the door handle field.
Fusital handles are manufactured with handcraft care and they are treated to grant the best durability. The long time tradition of the Company achieved through significant investments both in research and craftsmanship was turned into the ability to offer a wide range of innovative and high-design products: our door and window handles. The handle is considered as a piece of furniture.
