Olivari door handles adorn monumental home in Oud-Zuid

Interior Studio van Maanen assumes ‘sophisticated simplicity’

In leafy Amsterdam-Zuid, a 120-year-old home needed to be completely gutted on the inside and redesigned. The owner gave this assignment to interior designer Sebastiaan van Maanen of Interior Studio van Maanen who, while respecting the existing building, created a modern, stylish home. In keeping with the understated look that has been carried through to the smallest details, Olivari door hardware from Intersteel was chosen.

“The starting point for all our projects is ‘sophisticated simplicity.’ By this we mean that we treat the 120-year-old heritage with respect, realize a well thought-out design, while at the same time opting for a design with clear, minimalist lines and a warm appearance,” Van Maanen said. “And that has been implemented in this five-story residence down to the last detail.”

The whole place looks spacious and light, as glass and light colors have been used extensively. The Olivari series Lama L designed by Gio Ponti was chosen for all the door hardware. This design is characterized by a simple geometric shape so thin that it resembles a blade (llama in Italian).

Executed in brass and featuring matte anthracite PVD coating, the door handles match perfectly with the faucets chosen in this home. This is brilliantly displayed in the bathroom, which also features a beautiful freestanding bathtub. “Matching the faucet with the door handle is very nice. Apart from the fact that we always loved the design of Gio Ponti’s Lama handle and this was the perfect project to choose this handle” Van Maanen emphasizes.

Other details also betray a preference for tasteful accessories. The Olivari Lama L door handles stand on a round rosette that is only 5mm thin, creating an extremely sleek design. In addition to the door handles, Intersteel also supplied the Lama L window handles, sliding door handles, door stoppers and front door knob in combination with matching security rose. All these accessories match each other excellently in terms of style, giving the whole an extremely well-kept and luxurious look.
