Leverus Door Handle is Formally Exaggerated to Enhance its Function

Despite the obvious elaboration of the Leverus Door Handle's length, the object does not exude the amusing or the novelty air that one might anticipate upon reading its description. The elegant piece of hardware is an incredible 30 centimeters long and offsets the familiar ratio of a door with a surprising grace and functionality.

The beauty of Art Lebedev's doorknob is that it's a great deal easier to grasp with its offer of a much lengthier handgrip. When one clutches it towards the extremity of the slender bar, it also facilitates an increasingly efficient movement of the wrist and elbow so that the user can open the latch with far less effort. Finally, the Leverus Door Handle's exaggerated form allows it to proudly assert its purpose.
