Pba’s everyone millwork pulls finalist for the 2019 idea award

The new collection of millwork pulls designed by Gensler for pba competed as finalist for the selection for the 2019 IDEA award.

The International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) is one of the longest running and most prestigious design awards programs in existence. Each year, thousands of entries are submitted by design teams across the globe, making idea one of the largest and most widely anticipated annual awards programs in the world. Idea set the benchmark for what a design award represents and has endured to become a career-defining catalyst for those talented enough to win. 

Gensler, the global architecture and design firm, ranked #1 worldwide with more than 500 offices, has collaborated with pba on a new collection of millwork pulls. Sculpted for one hand opening and closing with no pinching, wrist twisting, or simultaneous hand and finger manipulation required, each pull has a minimum opening width of 4” and a minimum opening depth of 1”.

Crafted of AISI 316L stainless steel — the hardest, most resistant, and most elastic of steels — and available in a wide range of sizes and finishes, the millwork pulls ensure a beautifully minimal solution for virtually every custom millwork application . . . And easy operation for the greatest range of users.

Inclusive design principle drives us create products that serve as many people as possible. While accessibility is a core objective, inclusion means much more. It enables people with diverse characteristics to use your product in a variety of different environments. We all know that design has the power to change the way people think and feel. The future of design will include integrating design decisions that enable all people to use the spaces we occupy and the products we use, regardless of age or ability or minimum legislated requirements.
