The architect and industrial designer Thomas Sandell collaborates closely with Habo Selection. He has, for example, designed the new TS series, which features door handles for indoor and outdoor use, handles, hooks and knobs.
Thomas Sandell’s portfolio includes renowned designs such as the famous Gåshaga Brygga at Lidingö, the interior of the Stockholm Stock Exchange and IKEA's famous chair Vågö, for which he was awarded the Red Dot design award in 2001.
– Great details should barely be noticeable until you get really close. Then you should be amazed and feel: Wow, this is a nice handle, or whatever you're reflecting on. Says Thomas Sandell, one of Sweden's most distinguished architects and industrial designers.
Now he is ready to launch his and Habo Selection’s new TS series, which consists of door handles for indoor and outdoor use, handles, hooks and knobs.
– Door handles should be nice to hold and great to look at, he says. – We touch and are touched by these many times every day when we open and close doors.
”In the TS series we have rounded the door handle on the inside to offer a gentle touch to the palm of the hand while the outside has a sharper shape to provide a graphic, visual expression.”
The new products are available in several different materials, including brass and matt chrome. – For Habo Selection we use genuine materials that convey quality and weight, says Thomas. – Yellow metals are modern and popular, but we also use timeless materials such as matt chrome, which is always a commercially viable metal.
