designs reduced to the essentials
Minimalist - designs reduced to the essentials
Minimalist - designs reduced to the essentials is the main characteristic of modern, purist interior design. KARCHER DESIGN has dedicated their mission to this style, and developed a new concept in which the door handle and rosette appear to be almost invisible: "The Mission Invisible”.
The result is a mini rosette with a diameter of just 30 mm and a thickness of 2 mm. The rosette disappears almost completely behind the door handle and reduces the door fitting to a minimum. A total of six matching door handle models are available in classic matt stainless steel, the multi-award-winning trend colour Cosmos Black and the contrasting new colour Polaris White.
Combined with the best-selling door handle model Rhodos ER28 door handle model, the door fitting takes a more reserved stance in the room by foregoing unnecessary components. For customers with an affinity for design, the German Design Award winner Las Vegas ER87 puts the focus on design and makes a targeted statement in the room. According to the motto: "Reduced rose for full attention to the door handle design." The door handle model Seattle, ER46Q, on the other hand, convinces with its clear edges and harmonises particularly well with the square mini rosette.
To complement the "Mission-Invisible" range, three new design models have also been developed to match the mini-rose: Soho, Boston and Brooklyn.
The model Soho ER57 was developed in collaboration with the product designer Itamar Harari. The challenge was to design the door handles in such a way that the rose becomes invisible. The goal; to merge the door handle and the rose into one unit. The Soho ER57 model exhibits clear edges with rounded elements. This balanced interplay of forms allows the door handle to rest ergonomically in the hand.
In homage to the very popular door handle model Seattle ER46Q, the door handle Boston ER58 was developed. Here too, straight shapes speak for modern simplicity, which is fully exploited in combination with the mini-rosette. Compared to the Seattle door handle model, the handle of the Boston model is flatter in design. The handle neck also widens vertically towards the door to reduce the visibility of the mini-rosette to a minimum.
The model Brooklyn ER59 was developed in collaboration with the product designer Itamar Harari. The decisive factor for the design of the Brooklyn ER59 door handle model was the objective of "invisibility" for both the rose and the door handle. The door handle has a narrow design, stretching out flat towards the back at the door. Looking at the door handle from a distance of approx. 3m, only a narrow line is visible. The door handle is thus barely visible, and its presence in the room is reduced to a minimum.
Highlight polaris white
To make the door fittings appear even more unnoticeable in the ambience of the room, KARCHER DESIGN developed the colour Polaris white, especially for white doors. The white colour blends seamlessly into the background of a white door, making the door fitting invisible.
