For designer to create inclusive spaces means to design flexible and multi-purpose spaces aiming at accommodating different needs. TOCCO hardware Collection is designed to offer hardware choices, a commonly considered accessory - but the first object touched to access a space. TOCCO is the first hardware collection made of 316L stainless steel and ECONYL®, 100% regenerated nylon from waste that offers a range of levers and pulls, sustainable, interchangeable and sensory sensitive, with infinite color options and two handle grips, smooth or textured, to meet the tactile and visual preferences.

pba is the premier brand of AISI 316L stainless steel, the hardest, most resistant and elastic of steels, of polyamide 6, the most noble of thermoplastic resins, of aluminum EN-AW 6, smooth and durable, and of antimicrobial copper. We develop our main themes: door and window levers, pulls and locking pulls, millwork pulls, hands-free pulls, and all the accessories for a “life safe and without barriers”: the Design for All bathroom accessories, the Hand Sanitizer Cover and the Hand-Rail collections.
