Push / Pull

Affordance Handle

(push / push rotating handle)

It’s often not immediate and quite embarrassing try to guess how to open a door. Pushing or pulling it…
The affordance of an object is very important, gives the immediate “feeling” (partially unconscious) of what to do with it.

– The handle shape is peculiar.
– One side is a little peaked, the other is flat.
– According to cognitive psychology experiments I done with a prototype, there is a huge correlation between handle shape (briefly seen and touched) and the Push/Pull opening direction guess.
– Obviously, when you see and touch a FLAT surface you will PUSH, and when you feel/see PEAKED part you will NOT-PUSH so you will PULL.
