Window Handle

Back Download

The new concealed window handle picks up on the trend to minimalist windows, i.e. windows with narrow sightlines, concealed hinges and fittings. This innovative design idea solves the issue of visible window handles. What makes it special is that the window handle is concealed in the sash. Both have the same surface texture and colour. Looking at the window head-on, the handle is not visible anymore, adding to a homogeneous appearance of the window.

Statement by the Jury

The functionally sophisticated construction of this window handle achieves a convincing, invisible product solution. This opens up interesting architectural possibilities.
