Geometrical Precision: FSB 1271
The FSB brand provides scope for coherently end-to-end design in all areas of modern buildings with its FSB 1271 range. Architect Jürgen Engel has come up with door and window handles for the new product collection that are unerringly geared towards the needs of modern Civic/Commercial construction. Making it really stand out is a narrowdoor lever handle that, instead of being cranked in the usual manner, is visually almost indistinguishable from the other fittings in the series.
In keeping with an architectural policy of according equal priority to urban-planning benchmarks and interior-design features, Jürgen Engel lives out his ideal of holistic design in FSB 1271. The collection combines geometric precision with the utmost in convenience for the user’s hand by contrasting a flat-yet-flowing front with a lambently rounded reverse outline. Though the styling for the product series has been resource-consciously optimised, a thoroughly pleasant gripping volume has nevertheless been retained. Even heavy, large-format doors can be confidently opened and, in the case of fire-resistant Aluminium lever handles, the requisite steel core is satisfactorily enclosed.
The virtually identical design principle informing the standard door lever, the window handle and the narrow-door lever handle is particularly striking. The latter eschews typical cranking or any visible offset.
