TWIST L88.09

Architectural torsion is a key element in the design of a number of

UNStudio projects on different scales, from buildings to pavilions. For

Twist, torsion was adapted to the shape of a handle. Reducing the scale,

the twisting movement was reproportioned to be of human size, in order

to connect it directly to the body, the gesture of the hand, and its tactile

perception. Twist is a simple object with complex geometry that unites

and consolidates two sets of characteristics. For the anatomy of the lever,

the shaft containing the cylinder fluidly turns into the flat plane of the

lever, smoothly converting from tubular to flat surface. The ergonomic

contour created by this gradual transformation follows a dynamic

movement that is frozen, so to speak, into a solid material. Its appearance

is a balance of modernness and classicality. The volume that curves and

then flattens on the underside of the lever comfortably fits the grip of

thumb and index finger, while the flat upper surface reacts to the pressure

generated by the palm of the hand. A three-degree inclination toward the

door has the function of facilitating the hand’s grip.
