The timeless architecture system

System 162

System 162

Timeless architecture

The design language of System 162 is based on the mitre cut. The French architect Robert Mallet-Stevens came up with the idea in the 1920s to separate a round tube and join it back together again at right angles on a mitre. He thus created a minimalist door handle for timeless architecture. Today, the design is mainly known under the term "Frankfurter Drücker". The puristic design concept of System 162 is convincing with its straight lines, high functionality and material options. System 162 comprises fittings and sanitary accessories that are formally coordinated with each other, thus enabling a consistent design from the door to the sanitary room.

System 162 is also available in a high-gloss, coloured version. The polyamide model is reinforced inside with a steel core. The polyamide fittings are available in the colours black, anthracite grey, sand, umber, pure white and signal white.
