Franz Schneider Brakel FSB
What is common to lever handles influenced by elementary geometry is that they seek a link with the door in terms of form. For the designer of the FSB 1001, architect Peter Bastian, it was about more than that: he wanted his door handle to be a graceful presence on large and particularly tall doors, as well as to represent an almost doctrinaire reduction and abstraction of the geometry. In order to ensure his design was precisely reproduced in serial production, the FSB manufacturing specialists went to the limits of what was technically and economically justifiable. The result is a very precisely made door handle with a square cross section that fits ideally into your hand.
