We will be making our third annual trip to sunny Las Vegas again this year to attend and exhibit at the HD Expo 2013 and while there we will be debuting a few new items; but we need your help.
One of the items we are excited to debut is our new Ergo Extended Door Handle. Our original Ergo large door handle was named the “Heroic”. Funny story…when we first came to America many, many years ago we noticed that large door handles always seemed to be called “heroic” so we thought that maybe it was some American tradition or funny use of the word. Fast forward to the design of our Ergo collection and, in order to fit in, we named it Heroic. We have since learned that the word means the same thing in America as it does in England but we liked the sense of noble scale it portrayed and kept the name. “Ergo” is short for ergonomic and this aptly describes the collection. It is important in the design of this collection that the hardware pieces fit comfortably in the hand so, therefore, most of the pieces have both left and right handed versions. Perfect for use in a private residence as well as public spaces that might include health care facilities, retirement communities or spas and hotels.
What we need now is for our readers and followers to put on their creative thinking cap and come up with a suitable name for the new, larger version of the Ergo door handle in lieu of the descriptive but rather boring “extended door handle”. Weighing in at a hefty 10 pounds and measuring an impressive 35 1/4″ of solid stainless steel, this dramatic piece can be used as back to back handles on glass doors or anywhere you are looking to make a definite design statement.
The winning entry will be chosen by us and the lucky winner will receive both a left and right mushroom drawer pull from our custom hardware Flora collection. These lifelike yet whimsical pulls can be used to update an existing piece of furniture, cabinet door etc. The only restriction to the new name is that it must contain the word “Ergo” and all entries must be received by us either in the comments section of this blog post or on our facebook page before midnight on March 1, 2013. We look forward to reading all of your wonderful suggestions.
