Design is in the Details
A selection of space-defining architectural hardware.
It is details that ultimately define a great-looking space. And architectural hardware is one of the most important—and most often overlooked—elements that architects and interior designers have at their disposal. A well-designed door pull or handle must integrate aesthetics, ergonomics, and function—something manufacturers work with architects and industrial designers to achieve. Consider Jasper Morrison’s lever for FSB, based on a 1980s handle the designer felt was worth reviving. The diverse products on these pages demonstrate that whether designers opt for a brand-new material like AluGrey or a timeless form, they have more options than ever to choose from in their search for the perfect architectural detail.
