shl lever on roseikons
schmidt hammer lassen wanted to challenge the field of tension between tactile and aesthetic concepts – will it be possible to design a sharp-edged handle that has an ergonomic appeal? Their aim is to create products that mark and support buildings of the future, our suroundings, and our everyday lives. With architecture as their point of departure, they have a good tradition for creating products that provide coherence between unity and detail. The schmidt hammer lassen handle is the first product of a future series of products from schmidt hammer lassen design.
For more than 20 years, schmidt hammer lassen architects design has been one of Scandinavia’s leading and most award winning architectural design houses. Their passion for a holistic and unique architecture, with an emphasis on the interaction between the building, its occupants, its surroundings, and the Scandinavian light, has given them international recognition.
The lever handle from schmidt hammer lassen was originally designed for ARoS - Århus Art Museum, which was inaugurated in 2004. The concept behind the lever handle was to create a unique, functional, and simple design which, in the given context, would lend visual balance for experiencing art, and later find broad use in both new and old buildings. Despite its angular and immediate impression of sharpness, the handle gives the user a welcoming and friendly reception. The edges are rounded off, so the contrast with the angular appearance gives a surprisingly “soft” experience when used which is emphasized by the impeccable functionality.
The series consists of lever handle, cylinder escutcheon, bathroom indicator.
The lever furniture has an 8mm spindle with 38mm fixing centres. We recommend use with 72 series locks & latches.
