Klodea, an Italian hardware brand, has made its entry into the U.S. market with a collection of 10 modern cabinetry handles.

The collection, created by designer Simone Viola, is inspired by natural elements while focusing on functional and ergonomic shapes. The line is manufactured at the brand’s Italian facility, a process that is directly supervised by the design team.

“Klodea’s handles and finishing accessories are the interpretation of a typically Italian design language,” says Viola. “When designing these products, we’re building from tradition but adding an unprecedented lightness to the lines. Vision and action are thus combined as the products become the expression of beauty and ergonomics.”

Each Klodea piece is made from Zamac, a high purity zinc with alloying elements of aluminum, magnesium, and copper. The material is highly malleable, allowing the Klodea team to experiment with shape and flexibility. The recyclable metal requires a lower melting point than many other options, saving energy during production, the company says.

All 10 hardware designs are available in five finishes, including polished chrome, matte satin nickel, aluminum lacquered, coffee, and chrome.
