Fred Pilbrow

Fred Pilbrow set up a new practice Pilbrow and Partners in February 2013. Previously a founding partner at PLP Architecture, he led the competition winning team that designed the Francis Crick Institute, a national biomedical research centre in London's St Pancras. The lever handle designed by Fred Pilbrow for izé is a simple elegant design which lends itself to both door and window applications. A broad, slender grip emerges from an angled neck in a seamless attenuation. The form resolves itself back towards the rose with a pair of broad chamfers. www.pilbrowandpartners.com
