Allegion
Verta Series

best_finalistFormworks previous work with Allegion on the Stella and Alba product ranges, lead to the design of their new stainless steel designer range, the Schlage Verta Series.

Allegion had a vision to develop a designer range of door and window furniture. Formworks were engaged in developing this vision further, influenced by classic designs, modern trends and architectural spaces. Subtle detailing was adopted to define, elevate and modernise the classic square shape. Bevelled edges soften hard lines and create an architectural element by reflecting light in every direction. Straight edges transition to gently rounded backs, curving into your hand and creating a soft touch point.

No compromise is made during construction. Solid stainless steel is used throughout, moulded nylon tips are seamlessly melded to vents, radius corners are micro-millimetre perfect and curved edges are polished with watch-maker precision. Verta’s precision engineering, uncompromised design and superior construction is the perfect balance between functionality and beautiful design.

The Verta Series was a finalist in the 2015 Best Design Awards.
