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.
What is a profile cylinder?
A profile cylinder lock is used as a classic for house, office and flat entrance doors. A profile cylinder is a cylinder that can be operated with a key. Profile cylinders therefore also provide a certain degree of protection - although less than protective fittings. Attention: If you want a door handle with profile cylinder insert, please note the marking PZ.
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.
Care instructions for stainless steel: Door handles, window handles and co.
High quality material with intelligent surface
GRIFFWERK is not limited to noble design - we are proud of the inner values of our products. We exclusively use stainless steel of alloy 304, also known as "1.4301". This high quality steel is - matt or polished - due to its composition stainless with special corrosion resistance and durability. Stainless steel forms a very thin protective passive layer, which rebuilds even after surface damage caused by chemical reactions.
Our care spray
GRIFFWERK recommends the "GRIFFWERK Care Spray", which is specially designed for our products, to care for and maintain the value of your stainless steel door handles and fittings. It cleans intensively, has a dirt-repellent effect and thus maintains the value of your stainless steel room door set, door handles and door fittings. Please do not use any aggressive cleaning agents or scouring agents containing alcohol for cleaning - regardless of whether the stainless steel surface is matt, polished or shiny. Please note that the surface of the lever handle set can be damaged under extraordinary stress, for example by building dirt, grinding dust, aggressive vapors or salt water. For this reason, clean the handle set with GRIFFWERK Care Spray immediately after soiling. Our GRIFFWERK care spray is available from all our trade partners.
