Easy Lock / Easy Lock

Easy Lock

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Traditional locks tend to look ugly, are cumbersome to use and difficult to store. This design integrates the lock in the door handle. When the lock is not used, it disappears in the handle. The lock is operated by code which provides greater safety than traditional locks. The lock is simple, elegant and easy to use.

This kind of door handles generally don't get that much attention by designers. But a nice observation of this problem and proper conclusion ends up in a really useful product.
Jury Statement
Design provides me with a great way of thinking, which helps to identify and solve those tricky problems in life. If I'm honored to have the chance to bring more comfort to people's lives, I owe it to the value of design itself.
