Door Wrench: Tool-Style Knob Fit for Industrial Interiors

Instead of waiting for your door handle to break on its own, then pulling wrenching it open, this clever grip skips straight to the toolbox for design inspiration.

While it might prove kitschy for your kitchen or a bit too mechanical on a master bedroom door, it could look great as a garage or workshop entry piece or inside an industrial loft conversion.

Swing it to the other side and you can open doors in reverse – or leave it in the middle as a tactile method of feeling the nature of applied leverage and angles in context.

Tirdad Kiamanesh of Tehran, Iran, envisions simple glossy metal, matte black or coated and colored finishes for the attachment hardware as well as the rotating hand grip, making them a fit for any setting offbeat enough to handle them.
