Sehorsch Architektur und Design | Los Angeles, California


Our GATE of ISHTAR door handle was named after the eighth gate to the inner city of Babylon. It is designed to perform superior to common door handles on the market; it combines two functions within itself - being a normal door handle and a safety door chain in one piece. The GATE of ISHTAR door handle is suitable for left or right handed operation.

PUSH the red spring loaded button and the door handle will slide towards the door - rotate the handle   180 degrees clockwise into the door frame mounted bracket.
RELEASE the red spring loaded button and the door handle will automatically slide outwards into the bracket and safely lock the door handle in place. The system is now resistant to any penetration from outside the door.

The main body of the door handle - as well as the door frame mounted bracket - are made from sand casted aluminum. The unfinished surface gives the object a very characteristic industrial look as well as a distinct haptically touching experience.
