handles in noir

Biel, 2023
        For the office renovation of Jos. Berchtold AG we were asked to design the new door and kitchen handles. The handles were made of pressure treated local beech wood, which changes its natural wood color due to a chemical reaction of natural substances. This process was developed during a research project together with BFH AHB in Biel.
The new headquarters of Jos. Berchtold AG appears in a noble design, which is not only unique, but also makes the use of local woods (beech, silver fir) more attractive.
