Awards: Callwey & German Design Award
Callwey Award 2020 & German Design Award 2021
Designed by Itamar Harari
Multiple awarded door handles shaped for your hand
Karcher Design’s new lever model, PARIS ER55, created by the Italian designer Itamar Harari, combines ergonomics and design at the highest level. The balanced interplay of straight forms and pleasantly rounded edges also convinced the juries of two renowned awards.
Already at the beginning of the year, the door handle was selected as "Best Product" of the Callwey Award 2020. This was followed by the "German Design Award 2021" in the category "Special Mention: Building Elements".
Elegant design in outstanding KARCHER DESIGN quality
The highlight of this model, apart from its perfect geometry, is the beveled end, which is divided into two different shape elements by a clearly defined edge. This precisely defined design language is the reason for the ergonomic feel of the door handle. The triangular shape adapts perfectly to the user's hand, making the opening and closing of the door particularly pleasant. A door handle shaped for your hand.
"With this handle, a lot of attention has been paid to the fusion of two fundamental themes: ergonomics and design. The triangular cross-section provides a light and firm grip, while the shaped end piece avoids sharp edges. All details have been combined with the same design language with straight lines and surfaces". - Itamar Harari about Paris ER55
The combination of high-quality stainless steel and the three-part rose technology promises the door handle, in addition to the design aspects, a high load capacity and outstanding KARCHER DESIGN quality. The model is available in satin stainless steel and on round and square rose. But the multi-award-winning Cosmos Black color also flatters the timeless and elegant form and accentuates the natural edges particularly well.
PARIS ER55 awarded as "Best Product"
For 9 years now, the Callwey Award "Houses of the Year" has been presented to the 50 best single-family homes. In addition, companies that make a contribution to the culture of living with special and innovative products are honored with the "best product" award.
