The door handle seemed like a good place to start for our first idea. The OEM design is simple enough to execute, and plain enough for us to work with. CNC machining, much like german engineering, is a high-precision manufacturing process. It maintains strict lines, pocketing and contours, but also allows for some intricate 3D surfacing and texturing. As such, the handles are fully machined with 3D-milled rounded edges to match OEM contours and shape. We opted for black hard-coat anodizing to give the parts a more industrial feel and hint at the details in the machine tool paths. The pocketing on the back side has a nice, reassuring feel when reaching for the handle.

The main design element, the three stripes rendered in pop-art inspired halftone, is a stylized homage to BMW’s M division tri-color logo, made famous in the 70’s. After some debate we decided to mirror the design, making unique left and right specific handles. We feel this accomplishes an aesthetic balance, and flows with the body lines of the car from front to back. To maintain quality throughout, the handles have small rubber bumpers to rest against the door sheet metal – much like the OEM parts.

We tried to keep it minimal, impactful and meaningful.
