STRICT AND CLEAR WITH MAX BILL´S ORIGINAL
„Form follows comfort“ may have been the specification for the furtherdeveloped design of this extraordinary lock box. The new, comfortable option of closing by 1-hand operation is particularly distinctive. Thanks to revised technology, the closing head is now in reach of the thumb and can be comfortably actuated when pulling the door closed. The outer dimensions of the lock box have also been clearly reduced. The many adjustment options are comfortable as well: The spring force of the door handle can be individually adjusted and the grip position can be corrected to the millimetre.
GRIFFWERK’s reedition of the ULMER GRIFF shows the same, characteristic transition from a circular shape to an elipse. The shape is based on a mathematical principle, just as Max Bill had originally called for in his 1946 work, “The Mathematical Approach in Contemporary Art”. The ULMER GRIFF BY GRIFFWERK is the only licensed reedition in the world, and is therefore authorised to bear Max Bill’s signature.
