The classic among door handle shapes

The absolute classic among door handle shapes, LUCIA, can be assigned to the Bauhaus style. The outstanding design is not based on playful details, but, as usual in the Bauhaus style, on the simplification of a form. The compound basic forms and the use of basic geometric bodies are typical design features. Not only in Bauhaus style houses does the handle fit perfectly into the living room atmosphere, even on classic style doors this design becomes a representative eye-catcher with traditional roots.

Who is LUCIA?

As you can already guess from the sound, LUCIA is a female first name, which translates from Latin and means "light". 
The name also refers to a festival that is celebrated in the Scandinavian countries. As is not to be assumed otherwise, this is a festival of light - the counterpart to midsummer celebrated in winter. 
LUCIA is a saint in whose honor the Festival of Light is celebrated. This is the reason for the celebration, which is traditionally celebrated every year in Sweden, Norway and in Denmark as well as in Finland. No one has ever seen the saint, yet she is present at every festival. In most families the eldest daughter dresses up as the saint, whose head is decorated with a brightly lit wreath of candles. Since this is a festival of light, she leads the procession by candlelight and leads the retinue to the main place of the festival.

Why does our door handle have a female name at all?

At the beginning of our company's foundation, we have given all handles melodious names. Since this model in the Frankfurt form is an L-shaped handle, we considered a name with L as a good choice. The main reason for the naming is simply the sound of the name, which fits the shape of the handle and is easy to remember. The design of the handle is as sonorous as the name. Simple, slightly industrial and therefore suitable for every house, the door handle with the unforgettable name enjoys great popularity.

What is an L-shape?

The L-shape is a door handle that looks like the letter "L" in top view. A door handle in the L-shape consists of two stainless steel round tubes, mitered and assembled - so that the handle forms a right angle.

What is the Frankfurt Model - the Frankfurt Form?

The "founding father" of the L shape is the Frankfurt model from the 1920s. In the 80s, the door handle was used in the German Museum of Architecture in Frankfurt, where the name for the door handle probably comes from. A second approach is based on a different name origin for the handle: The L-shape was designed by the Frankfurt architect Ferdinand Kramer and thus came to its name. Since 1925 the door handle has been mass-produced in the Frankfurt model.

Even if the history of its origin is unclear: the door handle and the city of Frankfurt are closely connected. According to records, four different shapes are attributed to the door handle of the Frankfurt model. First, the L-shaped handle was produced from white bronze and nickel silver. This was followed by a switch to cast iron, aluminum and finally stainless steel. From 1920-1940, the Frankfurt shape for the interior door was the most commonly used handle for the room door.

Window handles - technical equipment

The window handles are attached to the window frame by means of the 7 mm thick square pin. How deep the square pin must be pushed into the window to lock it depends on the thickness of the window. You can easily measure this in advance with the help of a thin object, for example a knitting needle. To do this, push the knitting needle into the opening as far as it will go and mark the spot with your fingernail. If you now measure this distance with a measuring tape, you will have the length of the pin.

In addition, our window handles are equipped with a sliding bearing for a durable, smooth and above all silent function. Without costly maintenance work!
