ULMER GRIFF

With respect and license

GRIFFWERK’s reedition of the ULMER GRIFF shows the same, characteristic transition from a circular shape to an elipse. The shape is based on a mathematical principle, just as Max Bill had originally called for in his 1946 work, “The Mathematical Approach in Contemporary Art”. The ULMER GRIFF BY GRIFFWERK is the only licensed reedition in the world, and is therefore authorised to bear Max Bill’s signature.

A design classic from Ulm

From 1952, Max Bill headed the department for architecture and product form at the HfG Ulm. Together with the student Ernst Moeckl, he developed a door handle for the university building during this time. In 2012, GRIFFWERK reedited this handle in close cooperation with the max, binia + jakob bill stiftung, following the preserved originals.

The Ulm Handle by Max Bill

The ULMER HANDLE reedited by GRIFFWERK features the characteristic, soft transition of form from circle to ellipse. A principle based on mathematics, as Max Bill also called for in his 1946 work "the mathematical way of thinking in the art of our time". The ULMER HANDLE BY GRIFFWERK is the world's only licensed reedition and therefore entitled to bear Max Bill's signature.

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.

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.

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)
