FORMANI’s total concept 


Total concepts as a unifying force

In the realm of architecture and interior design, attention to detail is paramount. From the color of the walls to the choice of furniture, every element contributes to the overall aesthetics and functionality of a space. Architectural hardware, such as door handles, window handles and furniture hardware, not only serves a functional purpose in everyday use but can also have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of a space. Formani's approach to total concept in architectural hardware seamlessly integrates these crucial elements, presenting harmoniously designed collections that cater to various architectural styles and themes.

The Essence of FORMANI’s Total Concept Collections

FORMANI’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that an interior design is only truly successful when all elements are in balance. For this reason, all our collections constitute a total concept, where the unique combination of door fittings, window fittings, furniture fittings, and accessories allows the chosen design or finish to act as a unifying force throughout the full interior. Although doorware may seem like just a small part of the whole, we firmly believe that these details can make or break a design.

Applying Total Concept Collections

Our range is designed to create a harmonious whole, with the door handle as the focal point of each collection. This leading product sets the tone for the entire design. Architects and interior designers often begin their projects by selecting specific design characteristics. For example, the RIVIO by Gensler collection features elegant flowing cutaways, the ECLIPSE by David Rockwell collection showcases a modern cylindrical form, and the INC by Piet Boon collection is distinguished by its smooth inclination. These collections not only enhance aesthetics but also include essential accessories such as key escutcheons and privacy sets, ensuring a comprehensive design approach.

Architects and interior designers can seamlessly integrate matching tilt and turn window handles, available in both lockable and non-lockable variants, to further unify their design vision. This attention to detail extends seamlessly to furniture applications, where our hardware enhances both functionality and visual coherence, whether in bathroom cabinets or kitchen cupboards.

Furthermore, unexpected details like lift and slide door handles and precisely crafted hinges exemplify our commitment to comprehensive design integration. Each element is meticulously crafted to harmonize with our total concept collections, ensuring a holistic approach to interior design.

Expanded Color Palette: Refined Finishes for Every Style

Color and finish are also paramount in our collection. We have developed a robust and extensive finish palette that is applied across our entire range. When choosing a collection in satin bronze, for instance, all products in this finish will maintain the same color and quality. 

Our BASICS collection offers the broadest range of finishes. Options like satin stainless steel, PVD satin black, and bronze provide versatile choices that complement various design preferences and architectural styles. Our finishes excel not only in interior applications but also as exterior hardware, particularly with our PVD finishes, which offer exceptional durability and resilience against various weather conditions.

Consistency in finish application across our entire range—from door and window hardware to hinges and security plates—ensures a unified aesthetic throughout the space. Even accessories such as letter plates and numerals are available in matching finishes, providing a cohesive look that extends seamlessly from the entrance to the interior spaces.

By integrating our total concept collections and diverse finishes, architects and designers can achieve spaces that are visually striking and functionally superior. Our dedication to detail and design excellence ensures that every element—from the smallest accessory to the main hardware components—contributes to a unified and harmonious environment.
