A hands-free door handle for preventing infections.

Despite all the coronavirus lockdown measures, people still had to buy groceries. In order to make daily chores safer, Fortum created the Circo® Handle: a hands-free door handle supplement, made from Fortum Circo® 100% recycled plastic. The Circo Handle enables you to open any door or cabinet with your arm, thus avoiding contact with your hand and preventing viruses and bacteria from spreading. The handle was ideated, designed and prototyped by TBWA\Helsinki during the first 21 days of the lockdown. And only a few weeks after its release, Fortum announced a collaboration with the design corporation Fiskars Group for mass-production and global distribution of the handle.
