Crisalide and Dune: magic and colour in your hands

The Dnd novelties
by Elena Salmistraro

From the unmistakable creativity of Elena Salmistraro come two collections of handles that differ in image and identity, but share the recovery of porcelain as the material of choice and the ability to give personality to any space, in which they fit with style and elegance.


Crisalide is an eclectic and creative handle designed by Elena Salmistraro that gives it a cheerful and colourful look. Porcelain is revitalized with bold chromaticism that recalls the delicate and light beauty of the butterfly.

The handle’s shape, with its slightly flattened white sphere on the lever, evokes the graceful lines of the magnificent insect while remaining comfortable to use. The handle is available in various finishes and colours to suit everyone’s needs.


The soft sand dunes of the desert are the inspiration for Dune, the handle designed by Elena Salmistraro for Dnd. Its sinuous shape is enriched by the three-dimensional texture that captures the reliefs generated by the wind, defining the handle’s aesthetics and favouring a secure grip.

Dune brings back the vintage images of handmade porcelain handles from the past, updated thanks to the most modern processing technologies, which give them a modern look and finishes.
