The Brief:

To design a handle for specific mechanism developed for cold storage doors. Design for safety, efficient use, comfort and aesthetics, aligning with manufacturing possibilities of the client company.

Pull the handle to close the door, once entered. Push the lever to open the door.
The lever if pulled repeatedly, can cause damage or breakage to the mechanism.

The Process:

This design unifies two separate entities resolving the problem technically & aesthetically. Designed focused on avoiding lever pulling error.

Form is Function

Safe & Comfortable

Ergonomics

Form for ideal grip and interaction oriented design.

Comprehended with an intuitive design to push.
To pull, the hand conveniently grips only the handle designed for it.

Drastic temperature changes at entry- low temperature.

Heavy goods trolley

Gloved hands / uncovered cold hands giving poor grip control.
