Decorative fittings must not only function perfectly in modern furniture, they must also meet the highest demands in terms of design and trendy finishes - like the new furniture handle generation, which Häfele presented at interzum 2015. The current models are stylish accessories and give each furniture item its own, unique appearance.
Häfele presented its first handle collection for kitchen, living and sleeping areas two years ago. Today the company is expanding its product range with a second series of 13 high-quality models. They continue to feature a clean and elegant design but with this edition Häfele not only pays attention to functionality but also places a major emphasis on trendy finishes. Therefore, the handles are not only available in the standard versions of chrome plated polished and nickel plated brushed but also in frequently requested vintage style including warm hues of copper and bronze coloured tones as well as the stylish option of nickel plated black polished for fans of high gloss panels. These new Häfele handles enhance every piece of furniture in the kitchen, in living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. Or, put another way: There is a handle to match every customer request and taste.
Quality and Design go hand in hand at Häfele
It is understood that functionality and quality are key ingredients in any Häfele product. As in the first handle series Häfele pays attention to workmanship and finish. The handles sit well in the hand and are pleasant to grab. There are no unpleasant corners or edges that compromise the feel. The hardware is made of zinc alloy or aluminium and is suitable for any type of operation: for hinged and sliding doors as well as flap doors and drawers. Even heavy doors such as those found on refrigerators, dishwashers or on pull-outs for kitchen larder units are easily opened. The handles are also easy to clean and therefore the perfect alternative for those who are disturbed by ugly fingerprints on furniture fronts with push-to-open functions.
Häfele furniture handles are designed for standard hole centres from 32 to 448 mm and are therefore easily integrated into existing production runs. Some models feature double hole centres. All handles are tested according to standard kitchen industry procedures and meet even the highest quality expectations.
Just like the original models, the newly introduced handle collection is also “engineered by Häfele” every step of the way, from the design studies right to the tool making and mass production process. Custom designs can also be produced to renowned Häfele quality standards. In this process our customers in the furniture industry benefit from Häfele’s vast range of complimenting expertise: product development, production and customer driven delivery timing options such as just in time delivery. And Häfele has an in-house testing laboratory for quality assurance. The new collection is available from stock as of today and may be ordered in lot size one.
