In the 1950s, Swiss architect, sculptor and designer Max Bill got together with Ernst Moeckel to fashion a door handle for the new Ulm Design College building that drew on the handles common on railway carriage doors in Switzerland and has made design history as the “Ulm handle”. 1053 is a slightly reworked version of the 1023.

Product Series

Premium Series



The Premium Series contains two base materials, naturally finished stainless steel and bronze designs. Because of the cost of these base materials, products within the Premium Series are normally more expensive than the same products within the Elements and Transitions Series. Both metals have unique qualities and offer significant benefits such as durability and resistance to erosion.
