Brighthandle Illuminated Door Handle: Red = 'Do Not Disturb'


Swedish designer Alexander Lervik got the idea for the Brighthandle while gazing at a "Do Not Disturb" sign in a hotel.

He said, in a New York Times story by Ernest Becker, "I thought, it might be possible to design the function of that sign into the door, to use light to communicate the same thing."

The device contains an LED inside an acrylic tip that glows green


when the door is unlocked and bright red when locked.

It was introduced earlier this year at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and is slated to sell for about $150.
