  • FORMANI: we constantly challenge ourselves to push boundaries and create innovative products. Therefore we collaborate with renowned world-class designers, such as David Rockwell. Together with David Rockwell, we wanted to create a perfect balance between design, optimal functionality, and quality. We approached our design concept like we would for an interactive set piece on stage—transforming something everyday into a special object that marks a transition and transformation in a wide range of interiors. With an inflection point that responds to the human touch, Eclipse is a pleasure to use as well as observe.

  • Eclipse, a series of stainless steel, PVD-coated door fittings with a modern form and exceptional craftsmanship. The cylindrical silhouette features a sculptural curved and carved channel that makes it adaptable to numerous residential and hospitality settings. Simple yet precise tooling offers both a square and round return option for a distinctive profile. The smooth finish and intuitive inflection point create soft lines that ensure a perfect ergonomic grip. The door handle is manufactured as one piece, allowing the moon-like detailing to continue seamlessly along the entire length of the arm and over the curve to the start of the neck.

  • We set ourselves high standards, so that together with our designers we can produce the very best designs. And those designs are often simple, but innovative. This is followed by an extensive process of engineering, sampling, and testing, so that we can achieve the perfect balance between design, optimal functionality, and quality. This is where craftsmanship and technical ingenuity come into play. The door handle is manufactured as one piece, which is technical a masterpiece.

  • There are four different Eclipse door handles available. The difference is in the arms shape – round or square – and in the inflection point – along the entire length or until the corner. The door handle forms part of the complete ECLIPSE hardware collection, which consists of door fittings, window fittings, furniture fittings and other accessories. The entire collection is available in four expressions: satin stainless steel, PVD satin black, bronze, PVD satin gold.
