Unlike traditional window handles that emphasise their decorative or functional nature, Z:IN is set apart by its simple beauty. The harmonious combination of a minimalist, user-friendly form and gentle curves results in an elegant, modern appearance. Particular attention was paid to the distance between the turner and lever in order to keep the force required to open the window to a minimum. The aluminium surface gives the lever a pleasant, non-slip feel.
