Valli & Valli
Pasquale Valli had been supervising the design and development of umbrella handles for several years when he decided to create a different type of handle--architectural hardware. That was in the early 1930s. Today, Valli & Valliâs hardware is created by acclaimed designers such as Michael Graves, John Pawson and Renzo Mongiardino. The companyâs products range from door knobs and window locks to coat hooks. Many of the designs are fashioned from brass, with 40-plus possible finishes. Based in Renate, Valli & Valli Hardware is sold in 500 US stores.
