Product DESIGN and dEVELOPMENT

Steve and his wife Christina work collaboratively to design some of the worlds most innovative decorative hardware, using a broad palette of materials and finishes including, brass, leather and Amalfine ™.

THE BRIDGE DESIGN

Turnstyle Designs have been delivering luxury door hardware for high-end residential, commercial and yacht projects. From handstitched leather to individually hammered door hardware, attention to detail is found in every product made.

Shown here is a montage of a typical design development, in this case The Bridge door lever. Starting with inspirational ideas, Alvar Aaltos Tank chair arms were the starting point for this retro style, ergonomic door lever design. Designs were then sketched up in pencil before being fine tuned in Solid Works.

Initial masters were hand carved in wood to check the feel and lines of the lever. Renders then re-worked to produce a 3D model, more fine tuning before being signed off to create hot forged tooling, left and right hands. Castings are then machined and finished to produce the final piece.
