NIVA’s design project was born in 2018 in the small workshop of a house in the heart of Florence, where a new quest began: to search new and personal ways of understanding and reinterpreting interior design.

This story begins with the renovation of what will become NIVA’s studio

The peculiar structure of this house, in particular, the number of doors, provided the inspiration that gave birth to the first door handle collection.

Behind each door is an authentic and original space, a world unto itself with its own rules and characteristics.

The door handle becomes a special tool, a sort of “key” to access these worlds. The door handle is the object that allows us to open and close a door, however, it is also an opportunity to enjoy a new tactile experience, a simple action that unites us with the object itself.

The handle acquires a “magic” power, one that allows access to another world.

These worlds are filled with imaginary elements that inspire the collections of NIVA design.

Aside from door handles, knobs, wallpapers and mirrors, every year, NIVA design introduces new product categories inspired by the combination of sculpture, shapes from imaginary worlds and nature.

Everything is possible in NIVA’s world.

NIVA design offers also tailored consultancy services for interior design, furniture and accessories.



NIVA design offers an original and varied collection of luxury designer door handles and knobs, with a wide choice of shapes and finishes.

Our door handles have unique shapes that give an original and precious little twist to your surroundings.

The door handles and knobs made by NIVA design have original textures and shapes that will accompany you through the house with a unique tactile experience.

Everyday objects are transformed into sculptures and thus acquire new meanings.

NIVA offers a wide collection of design knobs suitable for all types of furniture.

Their unusual shapes are reminiscent of unexplored worlds filled with mysterious charm.

Each knob is a unique piece made by hand by bronze and brass casting.
