Design from Brakel. For the world of architecture
FSB lends shape to fittings and systems for the world of architecture whose design credentials and well-conceived engineering are beyond compare. Architects and builders’ clients favour reaching out for products from Brakel on account of FSB’s profound understanding of the requirements of Civic/Commercial construction. The specialist expertise we have amassed in over 135 years in business has given rise to more than “just” premium door handles that embody the very essence of good design and have even found their way into New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Everything in any way associated with handle culture in built spaces - and that includes fittings for doors and windows, systems for electronic access control and products for the barrier-free fitting-out of sanitary areas - is catered to from a single source.
FSB views a building’s shell and interior as constituting a single (artistic) entity, ideally the upshot of stylistic coherence, intermeshing functions and the aesthetic, emotional and utilitarian values these give rise to. This is an approach that grasps handles as being an elemental interface between people and architecture. A space’s idiom, after all, articulates itself in compressed form in a handle’s design. Either the handle becomes a harmonious part of the whole, or it quite deliberately creates a point of contrast. The FSB product range includes designs for any form of both contemporary and period architecture. Fitting doors and windows with FSB handles in Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Bronze or Brass greatly enhances their value.
Not only does FSB register architectural trends, it actively sets them and, what’s more, services them to perfection with, for instance, plug-in handles for doors and windows, flush-mounted roses, satin-matt blasted Aluminium finishes in a variety of anodised colours and much more besides that are a joy for hands and eyes alike.
