SMART LOCK push & pull
Dae Sun Choi, Young Suk Choi
The Smart Lock push & pull door lock gives authorised people keyless access to homes or offices. The door is unlocked via fingerprint or smartphone. Safety is further enhanced though the double authentication process which consists of either entering a numerical code plus fingerprint or a numerical code plus entry card. The door handle is not turned like a conventional handle, but is conveniently pulled towards or pushed away from the user. The multi-line key display is illuminated as soon as someone approaches it. This interaction emotionalises the user experience.
Statement by the jury
»The Smart Lock push & pull keyless door lock features an austere basic form which is juxtaposed with an elegantly curved handle, creating an appealing aesthetic.«
