A pair of door handles designed by the Modern Movement architect Hans POELZIG. These striking period door handles were specifically designed for the administrative offices of the giant I. Farben paint factory in Frankfurt. The building, completed in 1931, was the work of the architect and designer Hans Poelzig. One of the progenitors of the Modern Movement, Poelzig participated in the first major International Style project, the 1927 Die Wohnung expo.The event saw the construction of an entire estate of modernist dwellings in the elevated Weissenhof suburb of Stuttgart. Poelzig contributed a prototype single family house alongside Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius and Peter Behrens among others. Poelzig died in 1936, aged 67. These uncommon cast iron handles are in very good used condition with expected signs of age and use. There is some light surface scratching and traces of minor corrosion but no significant damages and, as you can see, they display wonderfully. These handles will look fabulous given a new lease of life in the right setting. I have a second pair of Poelzig handles in a separate listing and further Bauhaus period door handles available.
