Discipline: Product

When we go to the hospital, we are afraid of viruses and bacteria and there is also the danger of transferring them to patients. Doorknobs or handles are the most frequently touched items and most of the bacteria or viruses are left on door handles. Therefore, I have designed a door handle that not only disinfects the users' hands but also sterilizes the handle itself.

Especially in today's globalized and hygiene-sensitive environment, the need for health integrity is more and more important. This innovative and well-designed product offers the solution right at the point, where a large potential of infection exists. The product is easy to handle and provides the user a feeling of purity and safety.
