UX and UI design have completely changed with the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and one great example of this is this 3D-printed hands-free door handle. The piece is designed by Ivo Tedbury and Freddie Hong–two architects who met at the Barlett School of Architecture.
The hands-free door handle delivers with a DIY aesthetic, which isn’t surprising with how fast things have changed since the onset of the pandemic. The piece is essentially a “curved plastic device that attaches onto ‘fire escape-style’ pull door handles via a pair of cable ties.’ The format of the hands-free door handle enables users to open the door by looping their arm through the adaptor. The useful design can be printed in just under three hours.
