The collection features four unique door levers, all playful interpolations of slim rectangular arm on a distinctive cylindrical neck. Slim lines combine and dance with round, robust shapes, creating a silhouette that is at once minimal and iconic.
TENSE is available in multiple permutations, all which connect a slim arm to a distinctive cylindrical neck, from appliance pulls, to privacy locks, cabinet knobs and multiple door hardware options.
Designer Osiris Hertman was inspired by the handles on a bank, secure, complete - providing a sense of simple functionality. The resulting design features clean lines and a distinctive, tapered conical shape; technical mastery protecting something precious. The CONE door handle won the 2021 Red Dot Design Award in the ‘Product Design’ category.
The Jury commented: ‘The design of CONE door handle combines strictly minimalist design with sophisticated manufacturing quality to produce an expressive unit’. By working with natural light in combination with carefully chosen materials, Hertman finds the balance between luxury and tranquility. The CONE series is available in two finishes: our latest PVD satin black and satin stainless steel.
