The door handle was originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1956. In the mid-1990s, a renewed interest in modernism's furniture art and Danish design arose. This gave rise to a growing demand for Arne Jacobsen's furniture and art industrial works. That is why the AJ handle is today one of the very popular door handles in the whole world.
Original handles can be ordered in the following colors
- brass and stainless steel (brushed or polished surface)
- powder coated RAL 9005 Black, RAL 9016 White, RAL 7047 Telegrey, RAL 7037 Dust gray on stainless steel

These colors are the only ones that are described as original, there are many who process the handles themselves but these must not be marketed as original handles.
