The Arrow Door Handle Tells You Whether to Push or Pull

You may never have to worry about opening a door in the wrong direction ever again thanks to the Arrow Door Handle. The Arrow Door Handle is designed to literally point you in the right direction on how to open a door.

The Arrow Door Handle was designed by Eun Ah Kim, Jinhyuk Rho and Maria Rho. The design turns the ordinarily tame and unintuitive door bar on its head by turning it into an indicator arrow. The arrow serves both an aesthetic and a functional purpose as it shows people whether to push or pull the handle. Walking into a door because you pushed when you should have pulled is no fun. A design like this could prevent those embarrassing miscues and also add a little bit of pizazz and creativity to buildings.
