Door Hooks

Initiated by a request from the Economic Promotion department of the Canton Zug (Switzerland), we created a set of door hooks to curb the rapid propagation of the Covid-19 virus.


Due to a very limited time frame, we have tested the Sprint Design methodology (initiated by Google Ventures): a 5-day process to answer critical questions through design, prototyping and testing. Although the method is ideal for UI-UX and software dev. we found it to be a very interesting tool for industrial design.

The briefing: a device to open doors, locks and touch buttons without human contact to avoid the fast spread of the Covid-19 that could be produced using widely available domestic 3d printers.

Each of the following designs offer a set of advantages depending on your environment and needs:


DROP_the hook for public transport




Ideal for holding onto rails in public transports such as bus or trains.
