The Formani Door Handle Collection



ONE

The ONE series consists of door, window, and furniture fittings and is complemented by bathroom accessories such as soap dispensers and toilet brush holders, which serve to enrich spaces and create a harmonious whole.



Simplicity is the essence of the design of the iconic ONE hardware by Piet Boon, with the cylindrical volume forming its core. The clean lines and high-quality finish embody beauty and refinement, forming a coherent, elegant whole. It’s safe to say that the ONE series has developed into a true icon in the world of door handles and interior design.




INC


The Formani INC door handle has won the Red Dot Design Award 2019 in the ‘Product Design’ category. The Jury commented that ‘the ingenious design of the INC door handle blends a flowing yet powerful design vocabulary with pleasing haptic properties’. The winning INC door handle is part of the total concept collection consisting of door, window, and furniture fittings alongside other accessories. The INC series is available in two finishes, including the latest PVD satin black and satin stainless steel.



Smooth curves and an excellent grip is what characterises our INC hardware series by Piet Boon. Starting out as a circular cylinder volume, the INC took shape after flattening the circle and tapering the end. This provides the handle with a smooth inclination, to which the INC is named.




TWO


This complex, hand-made product is testament to many hours of hard work and dedication. The result is a truly stunning, unique design which is offered in three different expressions. First is the combination of stainless steel with natural oak; second is the line made from stainless steel and blackened oak; and third is the 100% stainless steel line. The TWO series is a comprehensive total concept collection, consisting of door, window and furniture fittings.



While the design of the TWO hardware series by Piet Boon may exude simplicity, it is in fact one of the most sophisticated products in the FORMANI collection. The intersection of the lever consists of two symmetrical parts that join in the middle of two separate arteries. Two out of three finishing combinations are with oak. The assembly of these fittings is completed with essential handwork that sees every piece of wood milled independently and fitted together with the stainless parts, like the pieces of an intricate puzzle.




ARC


Following clean lines and geometric shapes, the ARC hardware series by Piet Boon is defined by its no-nonsense appeal. The unique silhouette arose by dividing a cylinder volume exactly in half, which gives the ARC its characteristic flat side and a side characterized by an arc – after which the ARC is named.



The ARC door handle has won the German Design Award 2020 in the ‘Excellent product design’ category. The Jury commented that ‘the semi-gloss surface emphasizes the shapely, timelessly elegant design of the door handle. At the same time, it creates a very high-quality appearance and appeals to the touch.


The ARC series is a total concept collection consisting of door, window, and furniture fittings alongside other accessories, is available in satin stainless steel and PVD satin black, making it suitable for any interior design.




TENSE


The unique characteristics of the design received an honorable mention during the German Design Awards, one of the most prestigious design contests. TENSE by Bertram Beerbaum is a total concept collection including door, window, and furniture fittings and is available in the colours stainless steel, satin black, and bronze.



Designed by Bertram Beerbaum, the TENSE hardware series is guided by a clean aesthetic that is as robust as it is chic. Every design in the series is unique while at the same time bearing the unmistakable TENSE signature. The core of every design is the cylindrical neck to which each rectangular lever is connected in its own unique way. This is thanks to our extreme high precision welding technique, which forms a secure joint between two very different shapes.




CONE


The CONE door handle has won the 2021 Red Dot Design Award in the ‘Product Design’ category. The Jury commented: ‘The design of the CONE door handle combines strictly minimalist design with sophisticated manufacturing quality to produce an expressive unit’. The winning CONE door handle is part of the total concept collection consisting of door, window, and furniture fittings as well as accessories. The CONE series is available in two finishes: the latest PVD satin black and satin stainless steel.



The CONE door handle, inspired by the handle on a safe, is characterized by its elegance and timeless aesthetic. The neck of the door handle is tapered, resulting in its characteristic conical shape. The rosette-less design also creates the allusion of a floating door handle. The door handle is manufactured as one piece, making it a technical masterpiece, especially with the extremely high-standard finish applied. The seamless design imbues a space with a sense of tranquillity while substantially enhancing the overall aesthetics.




SQUARE


Each product of the series is made of solid materials and is manually tested for 100% straightness using a variety of tools and templates. Square has to be square, after all. This well-established series is the most comprehensive total concept range – including door, window and furniture fittings - featuring the largest number of products. One can recognize a Jan des Bouvrie by the smooth lines that emphasize the major elements of the door handle and complete the design.



The SQUARE series minimalistic design is a eulogy to the perfection of square and rectangular shapes. While the series is simplistic, its finer details are what make it truly unique. All the products have a bold and well-defined look, but their chamfered edges make them wonderfully tactile. The late Jan des Bouvrie, founding father of Dutch design, contributed to the series and imparted the final touches by adding smooth lines to the SQUARE design, accentuating the major elements.





BOSCO


The BOSCO series is a comprehensive total concept collection consisting of door, window, and furniture fittings as well as a wide range of accessories. The basic finishes consist of satin stainless steel, polished stainless steel, or unlacquered brass with a handle in satin black or carrara marble.



The BOSCO hardware series by Lázaro Rosa-Violán ‘opens doors from the past that lead to the future’. This quote defines the design formula applied to the BOSCO series by FORMANI®: classic design with a functional, modern look. These door handles are in every respect inspired by the famous historic knives that combined traditional stainless steel with black handles and which were an integral part of households in Europe for decades. The shape of the design consists of a cylindrical form connected to the handle of the lever, where the stainless steel is still visible from the upper side.





NOUR


The NOUR series concerns a comprehensive total concept collection including door, window, and furniture fittings and received a German Design Award thanks to its range of unique characteristics, one of which being its inherent flexibility. The range has a modular structure, so that the grips can be replaced and other colours substituted. This allows for a variety of stunning combinations of polished stainless steel, PVD matt gold, matt black, and matt white, completed with a signature or logo specially designed for FORMANI.



The NOUR series by Edward van Vliet combines an international appeal and aesthetic with excellent ergonomic features. The door handle’s design perfectly fits into the shape of your hand thanks to the streamlined silhouettes. In addition to its excellent ergonomic factor, this special design has drawn on many aesthetic influences from the Far and Middle East.




RIBBON


Traditional handles are composed of three pieces: the rose, the neck, and the lever. This is how the RIBBON door handle differs: these three parts are made out of just one single piece, with a unique bayonet fixation system. RIBBON is a comprehensiv
