TT1056: Fonteyn Thumb Turn

PRODUCT STORY

The slender form of the Fonteyn follows the uniquely distinctive lines of a handle designed by Italian architect Gio Ponti. As beautiful as the original handle was, the size did not suit many of the modern-day door proportions. We have recreated this timeless masterpiece, being careful to stay true to the original form whilst carefully increasing the proportions.


There are two sizes of rose backplates available, enabling designers to choose between having a symmetrical size rose to that of a lever or doorknob, or having a smaller size. A smaller rose creates an aesthetical hierarchy between the main feature (lever or knob), with the more discreet feature being the thumb turn.

DETAILS

Our thumb turns are made from finest grade solid brass and are hand-finished in all the standard Joseph Giles finishes.


Thumb turns are used in conjunction with a privacy lock & an emergency release (each supplied separately) and are usually installed on a hinged WC/bathroom door.


A thumb turn is fitted to the inside of a WC door and is twisted clockwise to engage a privacy lock and anti-clockwise to disengage a privacy lock, whilst an emergency release is installed on the outside of the door and can be used in the event of an emergency to open the door.


They are supplied as single items with an inner rose, a decorative cover rose, the necessary fixings and a 5mm square spindle.
