Guess I wasn't the only one thinking that no handle on the push side and adding a concave surface would work great! The handle for the pull side could have an inlay arrow (like Yo primary suggested) but with an added feature, putting some perspective on the arrow an some colour gradient to express action.

Pull motion to unlock. Not sure if such a planar surface will work well but i think it looks good..

I didn't spend a ton of time, but this was fun! A slot/thru-hole is routed through the door, and then the "handle" has the grab portion fed through, and then the push aspect is attached to the door. My thought was things that you push and never pull (A Button, generally speaking), and something you pull and never push (A rope, tug-of-war style).

Thanks Yo! I'm loving your concepts as well, I especially like the literal nature of some.

This is great. No iconography or words needed. The best kind of UI design! (though not always possible)

My vote goes to AVclub as well!
It only needs some gearing to unlock the door but that can surely be done.
Or we just hold the door in place magnetically, that works!

Super late entry, thought of a minimal icon outside for the push side plus a pull handle inside, both covered in copper which is antimicrobial,( skipping the locking hardware), nice challenge.

Thanks for the kind words all, there are some really cool concepts coming out of this thread!

I like the pull rod within a recess Keno and copper idea (patina would be nice too, but maybe messy)... though it does look a bit like an, um.... penis.

Though I suppose none of these are really ADA compliant...

All the concepts with arrows and hands I find don't really work. Hand looks like the DO NOT ENTER symbol, and arrows don't really show push "IN", more like UP or DOWN depending on orientation.

Not really the question, I suppose, but isn't the best solution just a door with double hinges that can be pushed OR pulled with some kind of double purpose bar? Or Star Trek doors that woosh open magically? :)

:lol: Completely accidental I assure you (I've modified designs for that reason in the past but it was late yada,yada) , I can't unsee it now oh dear.

Boeing designed a bidirectional latch that can be pushed or pulled. It also helps flight attendants to see when latch is not fully engaged.

Different challenge since door only needs to be opened from one direction but still cleaver.

Pending the creation of magic Star Trek doors, I'm curious of why buildings don't use double hinge doors more often where possible. Perhaps price or construction and fire safety prevent it.

Thats interesting! I wonder if it can be pulled or pushed at both the top and the bottom?
