In trying to attain ever greater levels of design geek-dom, we think we’ve done it this time.  That’s right, door handles from Finland.  While traveling around Finland we noticed that every significant building has gorgeous, hand-crafted, modern door handles.  It seems to be the final act on a project, that a good Finnish architect leaves his or her signature in the form of an uber-cool, custom door handle.  The metaphors here are rich… door handle as the first physical experience of a building, the interface between built-form and human being, we could go on all day… but let’s spare you the archi-speak and just get to the handles.  We’ve kept the images in black & white to focus on the form and texture.
