• program: Design and prototype of a duo doorhandle
  • client: Franz Schneider Brakel GmbH + Co KG, FSB
  • design: 2006
  • design team: Bekkering Adams architecten: Monica Adams, Juliette Bekkering, Vincent Hector


A fully integrated duo doorhandle: the doorhandle as a transmitter of information from one space to another. The proposed doorhandle makes the additions of signs, keys and other information media superfluous. Either the name of the organization or the logo, the function of the room, the name of the user of the room is engraved in the stainless steel of the doorhandle and the back plate. Led lighting indicates that the chamber is in use, and the "do not disturb" signs are include in the design through the red and green lights in the back plate. All functions can be added so that each time a totally different and personalized design can be created, fully focused on the user's needs.
