Søe-Jensen & CO.

SINCE 1862


If you like total simplicity, total minimalism, and total security, then Genon is the right choice. Can be sanded to a matte finish or patinated black on demand. Genon is a cone-shaped and elegant door lever. It is shown in our 1930 catalogue, but the design is from about 1910. It was introduced and delivered to Bispebjerg Hospital in 1914 by order of architect Martin Nyrop. Door levers (also known as door handles) come in sets of two with the original Søe-Jensen stamp and a lifetime warranty.

Delivery time: 3-4 working days from receipt of order.

Delivery: Free on purchases over EUR 300 to selected countries.

Lifetime guarantee: Offered on all natural brass products.

Right of return: 30 days from receipt.


Genon is revived when Christoffer Harlang , who is behind designs at Skagerak, Carlsberg and many others, in 2010 redesigns the classic together with Søe-Jensen. This minimalist, simple look fits with almost any style, and it is perfect for you, if you like understated elegance.

It is crafted from high-quality brass with a high copper content and plated with a finish of either brass, chrome, or nickel. That guarantees you the best chance of finding something suitable for your particular style. The door lever is sand cast and polished to a high gloss at our European workshop, where it is subjected to rigorous quality control. The material is always unvarnished, making it easy to maintain the shiny finish and ensure that it patinates beautifully over the years.

If you want something understated, minimalist, and simple, then Genon is the perfect door lever!

As trim, we recommend a rosette from the SJC Classic series or an Eskan escutcheon plate. The Genon series is also available in a slightly larger version and as window handles.


Door thickness 32-42mm, can be adapted to other door thicknesses. Standard iron spindle 8x8mm.

Length: 87mm
