Walter Gropius by Tecnoline
Walter Gropius was born in 1883 and to this day is regarded as one of the paragons of classic Bauhaus design. He studied architecture at the beginning of the twentieth century before entering the design bureau of Peter Behrens in 1907, along with Mies van der Rohe and Corbusier. As an independent architect and industrial designer, Walter Gropius went on to design the famed Gropius door handle, which was first produced by S.A. Loevy in 1923. Tecnoline has been producing a variety of Gropius designs since 1983, with the authorisation of the Gropius' heirs (until 2002 as part of tecnolumen). This door handle and the corresponding window handle by Walter Gropius were almost certainly designed 1923, but not manufactured by the Berlin company S.A. Loevy in any quantities until 1923. Such handles were available with various types of angular and rounded plates, roses and escutcheons.
