The design classic – System 111

The System 111 lever handle is characterised by its timeless design as well as a style reduced to the essential. This is what gives it its versatility.

Thanks to the strong technology with an internal steel core and the familiar style, the System 111 lever handle is highly versatile.

Exciting contrasts on the door – System 270

The door system designed by Hadi Teherani Range 270 is characterised by an architectural grace. The timeless lever handle is available with both the HEWI mini escutcheon and the bicolour escutcheon. 

With mini, HEWI has redefined the term minimalism. The greatly reduced escutcheon emphasises the clear geometry of the HEWI lever handle and puts it in a completely new light. The technology in mini sets standards. This is because the mounting concept allows the escutcheon to be reduced to a minimum; it has a diameter of just 32 mm and an overall height of only 3 mm. 

The design of the lever handle becomes a style-defining element on the door thanks to its deliberate simplification. The puristic design solution mini reduces the lever handle to the essential and elegantly highlights the black matt surface. 

Combined with the bicolour escutcheon, this creates an exciting interplay between the System 270 lever handle and the escutcheon. Deep matt black in contrast to the metallic stainless steel accents make the combination of escutcheon and lever handle so unique. 

Consisting of two materials, bicolour allows for an unusual mix: Escutcheons made of stainless steel and with metallic finishes in PVD enclose a coloured inlay of polyamide. This creates exciting contrasts with matt surfaces that give the escutcheon a velvety touch. The lever handle and inlay in deep black add elegant accentuation to the door. The matt-finished nuances in brass, copper, or black chrome open up individual design options. For both the private sector and busy office and commercial buildings. 

Puristic design in matt black – System 162

The style of the lever handle System 162 is based on the mitre cut. Its design was influenced by French architect Robert Mallet-Stevens. It is now known as the “Frankfurt lever handle”. The combination of purism and minimalism makes HEWI System 162 a timeless lever handle. The design in matt black underlines this feature. Combined with other elements of black interior design, it looks particularly aesthetic and striking with its straight-lined design and high functionality.  

System 162 is highly versatile. Whether continuous solutions for the building or individual design solutions for the home – with System 162, you will find the optimal solution.
