Ten years

of passion

The partnership between Studio Piet Boon and FORMANI

The foundations of the solid partnership between Studio Piet Boon and FORMANI were laid over ten year ago, and it is with great pride that we can reflect on a successful period that has seen the ONE doorware series evolve into a true icon. A mutual passion for quality and design forms the basis of our successful partnership. Capitalizing on this momentum, the existing ONE and TWO series now include two new, innovative yet refreshingly simple hardware designs: INC and ARC.

FORMANI X STUDIO PIET BOON: Ten years of passion

Studio Piet Boon and FORMANI believe in the beauty of simplicity combined with quality and functionality. The clean lines and geometric designs of the FORMANI by Piet Boon collections are pure, iconic, recognizable, and yet neutral. In addition to aesthetic design, functionality and quality always play a major role in the product development process. The overall hardware collection, consisting of door-, window- , furniture fittings, is complemented by bathroom accessories such as soap dispensers and toilet brush holders which enriches spaces and creates a harmonious whole. The series of products, all in the recognizable Studio Piet Boon design and colour palette, contributes to the serenity exuded by a living space. The product of ten consecutive years as partners, the FORMANI by Piet Boon hardware collections have become statement furniture pieces in many beautiful homes, businesses, and hospitality projects worldwide. It’s safe to say that the ONE series has developed into a true icon in the world of interior design.

INC hardware collection

Soft curves and excellent grip formed the basis for the design of the INC doorware series, which won the Red Dot Design Award when first unveiled. Flattening a round cylinder volume towards the end created a more cutting-edge design, giving the handle a smooth slope or 'inclination'. This was the inspiration behind the name of the series: 'INC'.

ARC hardware collection

The ARC series is defined by its no-frills appearance, featuring clean lines and geometric shapes. The silhouette for this design was created from a cross-section of the cylinder volume, resulting in a flat side and round arch. The name for the FORMANI by Piet Boon ARC series, which was recently awarded the German Design Award 2020, refers to this arch-like shape.
