Half Standard Doorknob

Established in 1918, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has had significant impact on the design and development of residential hardware, including the doorknob. A formal investigation of the ubiquitous interior doorknob, the Half Standard Doorknob foregrounds a simultaneously familiar and surprising experience of touching. Cast in bronze–an antimicrobial material long associated with doorknobs–the halved diameter draws attention to an action–and a standard–that has become nearly invisible to us.
