Hotel d'Angleterre

A few years ago, it was decided that Hotel d'Angleterre was to be restored and in connection with this it was decided that door handles from Danish Randi should adorn the doors. The collection is called Classic-Line and is created with inspiration from old and traditionel buildings. Find the handles in the Classic-Line collection here.

The Royal Danish Opera

The famous Danish architect Henning Larsen designed his iconic door handle in 1996. The handle can be found on the doors of The Royal Danish Opera and at Nordea's head office in Copenhagen. Henning Larsen's purpose of the handle was to create a product that was simple, elegant and has a narrow silhouette. Find Henning Larsen's handle here.

DR Koncerthuset

Jean Nouvel's beautiful door handles remind us of a set of animal horns. The handle was originally designed for DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen and the handles are still to be found on the doors of the building. Today, the handle is made in the materials: teak wood, beech, oak tree and brushed steel. Experience the many versions of Jean Nouvel's handle here.

Hotel Nimb


Today, the Medici door handle is beautifing the five star Nimb hotel, which is located next to Tivoli in Copenhagen. The Medici door handle is originally from the beginning of the 20th century but the handle is still produced today by Søe-Jensen & Co., which creates it in the original molds. Find the beautiful Medici handle here.

SAS Royal Hotel

Arne Jacobsen's popular door handle was originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1956 together with furniture such as "Svanen" and "Ægget". The handle is defined by curved lines and is extremely functional as it is created so that it fills the cavity in the hand that grips it. Find Arne Jacobsen's handle here.


Christian VIII's Pa

The Dolphin door handle is a French throne follower symbol, which means that it has over time adorned castles and mansions throughout Europe. The dolphin can, among other things, still be found in Christian VIII's Palace in Copanhagen. The palace was built in 1750-60 and today, the castle is the home of Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte. Find the dolphin lever right here.
