The Metrofarm Sneakerknob door handles adorn a variety of shoe stores in Berlin and Vienna, including Overkill, The Good Will Out and Paar. The bronze or aluminum Sneakerknobs are exact replicas of the Air Max sneaker; the quirky doorknobs add visual appeal to the store's exterior and enhance the company's brand.
Metrofarm is perhaps most famous for its furniture design, but the team occasionally works with private clients to create individual pieces such as the Sneakerknob. The retail world has increasingly embraced visually arresting window displays and exterior accents to entice passersby to enter, and Sneakerknob doorknobs are especially appropriate for the footwear segment of this market. See more images of the eye-catching door-opener in the gallery above.
