Just one - design concept without rosettes

ONE stands for maximum reduction and is the programmatic intent for this design line. The R8 ONE door handle has no rosettes at all. Thanks to specially developed technology, the handle now sits singularly on the door leaf. It still fits on doors with standard locks. In the version with locking mechanism, this technology has been integrated into the handle neck and is thus positioned within thumb reach. A handle design for the highest demands in two form variants.

What is smart2lock?

smart2lock stands for an innovative and intelligent locking technology that functions maintenance-free without electronics. A short click activates the mechanism integrated in the door handle. When locked, the door handle can no longer be operated on either side. On the outside, a red indicator on the door handle discreetly signals "do not disturb" - the most beautiful pause sign in the world. Of course, an emergency release on the outside of the door has also been thought of.

Where should the closing button be located?

Graphite black

Black is finding its way into architecture, whether on large window fronts, as entrance doors or in interior details. Griffwerk offers the right selection of black fittings. A special feature is the black shade developed by GRIFFWERK, inspired by the black of graphite. The material look is reminiscent of black graphite powder, the feel is surprisingly soft. Graphite black impresses with its unusual, velvety matt finish and soft surface. Graphite black accents can be repeated in the room. They have a very noble effect and do not stand for elegant refinement and luxury for nothing. Griffwerk offers graphite black design in various product categories, allowing a holistic design of any interior. Graphite black is close to the RAL colour RAL 9011 (graphite black). Whether door handle, window handle, handle shell pair or even just handle bar, what is important is a uniform interplay of different colour elements that emerges from a conscious colour concept.


Innovative without rosettes

From now on, rosettes can be dispensed with. The handles of the 'One by Griffwerk' product line sit directly on the door leaf and thus create a very reduced, new door aesthetic. Locking rosettes, such as WC and key rosettes, also become superfluous. The locking technology for these door handles was integrated directly into the handle neck using 'smart2lock by Griffwerk'.

German Design Award 2021 for Griffwerk R8 ONE

The rosette-less door handle concept R8 ONE has just received a German Design Award 2021 in the category Excellent Product Design - Building and Elements. The jury's statement on the award ceremony: "The timelessly elegant lever handle not only does without a rosette, no, the locking mechanism was also integrated directly into the handle. A consistently reduced design, whose purism is underlined by the clear design language.

Smarter closing

All handles in the "One" product line are equipped with the innovative "smart2lock" locking technology. The locking slide is conveniently located within thumb's reach. Doors can now be closed and locked with just one hand. The locked handle can no longer be pushed down, but can be unlocked from the outside in an emergency. All handles with "smart2lock by Griffwerk" fit conventional door locks; WC door locks do not have to be installed.

1-hand-operation combined with elegant, flush appearance.

smart2lock stands for the perfect combination of intelligent locking tech-nology with puristic design. All door handles can be locked and unlocked with just one hand. And since the locking mechanism is integrated in the handle, no key rosette is required.

Innovation meets haptics

Another plus for R8 ONE is its exceptionally soft feel. This is created by the refinement with the premium surface "soft2touch by Griffwerk" developed by Griffwerk. It offers a unique, tactile user experience.
R8 ONE with is available in three color shades. "Velvet gray" looks like stainless steel, but feels softer thanks to the premium surface with "soft2touch". As a result, the color does not appear cool as is typical of stainless steel, but rather somewhat softer. Nevertheless, other fittings in stainless steel can be combined with R8 in velvet gray, as the color has been adapted to the stainless steel look. "Cashmere gray" appears bright, inviting and cozy. For those who want to play more with contrasts and accents in the interior, "graphite black" is just the right color.

Clear design

Handles from the "One by Griffwerk" design line speak a clear, geometric design language and yet offer a pleasant gripping experience. The front surface runs parallel to the door leaf and gives the handles visual calm. The softly rounded back in combination with the "soft2touch by Griffwerk" surface finish ensures a pleasant feel. The locking slide within thumb's reach offers operating convenience.

Industrial Style

Untreated wood, exposed pipes, unrendered brick walls and concrete floors: The trendy interior style looks rough and does without frills. Everything looks used and unfinished. This is what makes the industrial style of living so special. The furnishing style is particularly popular in large and open loft flats. Typical of the interior design is a lush and massive leather couch, but door handles also contribute to the flair. Colours are used in industrial style to a limited extent, but in combination. This is to bring out an authentic industrial design.


According to the Duden dictionary, minimalism means "to deliberately limit to a minimum". The strength of minimalist interior design lies in the quiet focus on individual furnishing elements. Minimalism is not only a style of living. Rather, it describes an attitude to life that is reflected in the living space. Focus on the essential and do without the superfluous. That is the motto of a minimalist lifestyle. The goal is a simple elegance and purist structure. Choosing a minimalist door handle is the first step towards a minimalist living style.
