0803, HEWI Door Hardware and Bathroom Fixtures

Nine colored door handles, designed and manufactured by HEWI, are installed in a vertical column. Each color contrasts differently with the wall. Installed in the corner is a white sink with red details, accompanied by red bathroom hardware. HEWI's Dementia Care Bathroom collection uses color to accent the functional parts of a wash basin, a soap dispenser, a support rail, and other fixtures. Color makes these elements easier to recognize and understand.
