Corporate Doorware


As one of Australia’s pre-eminent homeware suppliers, H.A.G. is a family owned company that has been growing for over 45 years and offers well-known crockery and glassware brands such as Maxwell and Williams, Casa Domani, Krosno, Ritzenhoff, Doozie and Headline.

After years of successful growth, the need arose for larger premises and this allowed owners, Max Grundmann and William Ryan to bring a dream to fruition. Working with bg architecture, H.A.G.’s new premises for the corporate office and warehouse was to include a purpose-designed showroom to take prospective customers on a journey through displays of glass and crockery.

Design Brief

The most critical element of the overall architectural design brief was in dealing with glass and crockery, and working with a partly existing building shell. This included a big, open space, central atrium that was sympathetic to a design theme guided by the lightness and curvature of glass and crockery. From the moment of arrival and entry into the reception area, the design would glimpse a view of the showroom and beckon a journey via an interior design ‘ribbon’ effect, snaking around from reception into a circuit of the showroom.


A strong, yet subtle presence was required for the main entry that would create the perfect impression for the brand, whilst complementing the interior architectural design throughout. Moreover, all door furniture needed to finely complement the theme of curvature and lightness.

Customised Door Hardware Solution

In collaboration with bg architecture and using a circular theme as a reference to dinnerware, we created a powerful, branded entry feature to reflect H.A.G.’s corporate identity.

A twin set of circular, entry pull handles was made from solid, 316 marine grade, satin stainless steel, each featuring a raised H.A.G. logo which was highly polished. This provided a prominent, reflective effect in contrast to the subtlety the satin stainless steel background, and a complement to the overall design theme. Attached to glass entrance doors, the pull handles work in perfect harmony, leading into the stunning reception area.


Designer Doorware also provided door hardware to further extend and complement the design theme.
