Door handle Montana ER54 on a three-piece rose in satin stainless steel
Family-run business KARCHER DESIGN has made a name for itself creating door handles that win international awards and get specified for projects around the world. This year, the brand appeared at 100% Design in London, showcasing a range of products, including the new Montana ER54.
A new, timeless design
The new Montana ER54 is a refined handle design with a softly rectangular shape. The rounded edges provide comfort for the user, while the reduction of the handle to simple, geometric shapes gives it an elegant and timeless feel. As with the other three-part handle models from Karcher Design, the Montana ER54 also features the three-part rose technology, designed to give stability and a high quality finish.
One door handle – more than 100 possibilities
The Torino R53 in cosmos black with white glass inlay
Other products on display included the inlay door handle, Torino R53. The slight recess incorporated in the casting allows for inlays in a range of colors and materials, including the newest versions made of white and black glass. Its shape is inspired by the essentials of modern architecture, and thanks to its round neck and cuboid-shaped handle it matches round escutcheons as well as square.
German Design Award Winner Las Vegas ER87
The German Design Award winner Las Vegas ER87 in satin stainless steel
The ER87 Las Vegas, designed by Itamar Harari and winner of a German Design Award, is more rounded, with a futuristic look lent by its flat, curved shape. It’s the fourth project in which KARCHER DESIGN has collaborated with Harari, an architectural and indusrial design specialist. It is designed to be used in conjunction with its match, the ER88 Nevada, which has a design that curves downwards and extends into a flatter tip. Just like Las Vegas, the Nevada is defined by its rounded and curved shape, designed to fit ergonomically into the customer’s hand.
