If you live alone, it's not long before you start giving your furniture nicknames. Cleon, my armchair, is a great conversationalist.

That said, I've never really gotten to know my door all that well. It keeps to itself. I don't even know its name.

All that can change with this door handle. Amsterdam-based designer Naomi Thellier de Poncheville's Hand-le, exhibited at the London Design Festival, would let you shake your door's hand to open it...or at least grab its hand and twist it. Doors need persuasion too, sometimes.
