Design a door handle for manufacture
Walter Gropius (pictured), Alvar Aalto and Norman Foster have all designed door handles, and now the AJ, in association with architectural ironmonger Allgood, is offering you the chance to do the same.
The AJ and Allgood are launching a competition to design a lever door handle, and Allgood will prototype the designs of shortlisted entrants. Following the prototyping, a winner will be selected and announced at the 100% Design event in September. If the winning design proves suitable for production, the designer will receive royalties from Allgood.
The judges will be looking for a beautiful, ergonomic and technically feasible design.
The closing date for entries is Friday 9 May, and details of the competition can be found on Allgood's website.
