d line is a leading Danish design brand that conceives and hand crafts enduring architectural hardware, sanitary ware and solutions for barrier-free living.
Since we began, we have believed that the best ideas respond to a need. This started in the 1960s when the Danish designer Knud Holscher was working under Arne Jacobsen on St. Catherine’s College Oxford. It was his need for a high-quality, coordinated line of stainless steel architectural products that led him to design one.
In 1971, those first products were launched as d line and included two lever handles – the Ø14mm U and L. Their perfect harmony came from sharply bent sections that maintained the radius of their cross sections. Since then, in new categories and through new design collaborations, we have continued to create enduring products.
As a result, the architects who choose our products do so because they are a simple, reliable, innovative, total solution to Holscher’s original problem with St Catherine’s College. A perfect toolkit of pieces for rooms that are effortlessly balanced in their practical details. To the spaces they occupy, they bring a sense of unity – they are often the finishing touches, yet they are never an afterthought.
