„The history of a Project is important to us. We are looking for the archetype - the ideal character and personality of an object - and iterpret it in a contemporary fashion.“
Christian und and Michael Sieger
Innovation in times of change
Inspiration is the key to Innovation – and always the result of sensitive perception. The key concepts behind all our developments can be distilled as follows, despite the variety of product ranges and manufacturers: our concepts and product design are defined by the continual changes in our environment, society and culture. As designers, we may observe society, its changes and its needs more closely than perhaps any other professional group. We see ourselves as sensors for seismic shifts in attitude, perceiving new tendencies before they have taken shape. Our impressions and analyses determine the special lines of our products. At the same time, we try to reflect the inherent character and the personality of the item.
Powerful dynamics in the tension filed of a resting straight line
Inspired by the wings of a bird, LEAF LIGHT has a delicate filigree character of its own with excellent brand recognition. The design creates tension with the contrast between the curved lower contour and the horizontal upper line. The cylindrical neck flows into the horizontal profile of the handle and ends in a gentle curve. Your hand rests comfortably on the horizontal surface, while your thumb finds orientation on the obliquely cut front surface. Overall LEAF LIGHT creates a subtle and delicate feature on the front panel of your door.
Softly rounded according to geometric principles
MINIMAL MODERN represents a modern and contemporary interpretation of a door handle and thus blends harmoniously into all residential surroundings. This architecturally minimalist basic shape is charmingly detailed with soft curves. This relates first and foremost to the visible surface and is taken up by the rear, creating pleasant and, at the same time, unexpected grip comfort.
Parallel lines and differentiated transfer design
GRAPH appears elegant and minimalist. Its clear, geometrical design desires a formal relationship with your door. GRAPH does not turn away but is self-confidentily restrained. The continuous parallel lines of the top view enjoys a contrast to the austere edge of the visible surface, thanks to the gentle curvature of the rear of the handle. GRAPH is synonymous with a systematically modern attitude.
The brothers Christian and Michael Sieger, the creative minds behind Sieger Design, are among the big names on the scene. Through their father, the architect, product designer, painter and art collector Dieter Sieger, they were born with a weakness for outstanding design. Whether youthful, timelessly modern porcelain series for Arzberg or upmarket tableware for Fürstenberg porcelain, whether trend-setting design for bathroom fittings by Dornbracht or washbasin and bathroom furniture Duravit, whether glasses for Ritzenhoff, cutlery for WMF or writing utensils for Lamy, a sophisticated garden shower for conmoto or lighting families for trilux, whether trade fair stand or brand presence - the list could go on and on.
The same applies to the overview of the awards and prizes with which the dynamic family-run company, with its headquarters in Schloss Harkotten near Münster in North Rhine-Westphalia, has been honoured since the early 1980s.
The renowned designer duo created the "Characters" collection for the family-run company GRIFFWERK, the premium supplier of glass door design and high-quality door fittings based in Blaustein, just outside Ulm. It comprises three very different models as well as the highly versatile lock case "Gate". It received the iF product design award in 2014. All of the winning design drafts for Griffwerk have one thing in common: consistent reduction. However, if one looks at the details, one quickly discovers the unique personality of the straightforward, strict "Graph", the enchanting "Leaf Light", which is modelled on the wings of a bird, or the elegant, simple "Minimal Modern".
For one of the largest design offices in Germany, the door handle was initially the focus of development as a "tool". Whether in your own four walls or in a public or commercial building - it opens and closes rooms. For this to happen, people must perceive the door handle with their eyes and finally operate it with their hands. In this way, perception and haptics come into play. Last but not least, the overall appearance of the fittings and door must be right and people must be able to identify with it.
