In 100 years of history, Olivari has always sought the highest quality by relying on the creativity of the best designers and architects to create designer handles. For many years, the Olivari family has been focusing on research and innovation. Battista Olivari founded the company in 1911 in Borgomanero (Novara), where every step of the production process for the company’s handles still takes place. In 1926, Battista was succeeded by his wife Antonietta Ramelli, one of the few women to manage a company at that time. In the 1930s, the company began its first collaborations with the most important Italian architects of the time: Marcello Piacentini and Gio Ponti. Today, the company works with great contemporary designers and architects: Piero Lissoni, Rodolfo Dordoni, Patricia Urquiola, Jean Nouvel, UNStudio, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Marcel Wanders and Vincent Van Duysen, Antonio Citterio, Carlo Colombo, Max Pajetta and Luca Casini.
