"The character or expression of any building can only be achieved if it is itself a total expression. Like any work of art, it must be dominated by a strong, simple concept. All of its parts must be an active part of one dominant attitude." -- Eero Sarrinen
Saarinen believed good design respects context – a lever on a door, a door on a wall, a wall in a room, and so on. We believe that, too.
The Good Design Studio is your partner in the epic pursuit of beautiful doors, frames and hardware from ASSA ABLOY Group brands.
Doors may be the most intimate points of contact we have with a building. They should look great, swing or slide, defeat the heat, block the cold, be green, keep the peace, make us safe.
When thoughtfully considered, design elements such as doors and hardware help make architecture lasting and timeless. To open a door is to reveal a world that begs for exploration and experience.
