  • Increasingly, architects and building owners are seeking to amplify a single narrative throughout their projects. The simple concept behind Giro was to devise a highly customisable entrance pull that would elevate a building’s first impressions by reflecting its broader design narrative.

  • The customisation of door furniture enters a new dimension with Giro, which permits the seamless integration of bespoke timber, metal and stone elements into an entrance pull that is robust, elegant and distinctive. Giro does this by successfully melding different materials into a cleverly engineered and visually pleasing solution.

  • Giro creates the ultimate handshake between a building and its visitors. A product of immense beauty, Giro sets a new benchmark in customisation, where natural materials of marble, terrazzo and wood can be specified with a brass or stainless steel edging that features a satin, matte or polished finish.

  • •Giro is manufactured by hand in Melbourne, Australia, using raw, natural materials •The design allows the specifier or client to incorporate elements of their choice, such as a piece of art •Giro can be sold as an empty shell, so that the purchaser can customise the insert at a later time
