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.

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.

Look & Feel!

The surface finish developed by GRIFFWERK, soft2touch by GRIFFWERK, combines an extraordinary look with a velvety soft feel. Surfaces make a decisive contribution to a positive product experience. This is especially true for door handles, which are touched countless times every day - not only on inner doors.

In three colours

In addition to graphite black, there are two other colours to choose from: velvet and cashmere grey. What all surfaces have in common is their exceptional tactile quality. The three new colour shades were developed by GRIFFWERK and coordinated down to the last detail.

Triple finished

For the desired 'soft2touch' effect, three wafer-thin layers are applied. The process has been fine-tuned down to the last detail. A special carrier layer serves as the basis. It has a fine structure so that a lively material effect is created. The texture varies depending on the shade. 'Cashmere' and 'Velvet Grey' are distinguished by a discreetly ground appearance; 'Graphite Black' appears finely grained. The colour tone is defined by the subsequent pigment layer. The particularly pleasant feel of the handles is created by a final soft seal. It also gives the colour shades brilliance and depth.

Inspiration Graphit

We chose an exceptionally matt, very deep black that fits perfectly with the loft-style window and door elements. Glossy black would look much more unsettling, as the reflective surfaces would contrast strongly with the surroundings. Matt simply looks more noble and stands for modernity.

soft2touch advantages at one look:

  • Design dream thanks to new colors in cashmere grey, velvet grey (nickel-plated) and graphite black
  • Particularly pleasant to touch due to velvety soft feel
  • Less cold in the hand than stainless steel
  • Silky-matt appearance instead of being polished to a high gloss
  • Available for all systems in the house (glass doors, wooden room doors, windows)

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.
