Aerodynamic intakes are designed simply for optimal air flow yet their anonymous fluid form holds an unseen beauty. The restrained flow of air is a sensual transition from exterior to the interior—from solid, bright matter to an impalpable void. INTAKE is a shift in concept on the conventional door handle, where the hand first penetrates the void, connects with mass before discovering the opening mechanism.
The purity of the solid mass is held until the hand gently releases its integrity. In architecture, like with cars, the door handle are the first part of the building touched by the visitor; INTAKE enhances the tangible experience of physically relating to the building through its surface and mass.
Intake was launched in Milan in April 2011
