Seamless Design

Latch is designed for the culture of modern living. A new level of trust powered by intuition and familiarity. We created an innovative access experience where trust, longevity and mindfulness are key design values.

The silent and intuitive design allows for the user to build trust in a new technology system that is replacing a traditional key, an experience we lived with for thousands of years. And one that we expect to always work.

Latch's simple and restrained design is reduced down to it's most essential form to create an experience with universal appeal by merging the traditional physical lock, with a new digital world, into one seamless experience that is understood, useful and effortless. For everyone. Today there’s more complexity than ever — and simplicity has never been more important.

Thomas Meyerhoffer is Co-founder & CDO of Latch, responsible for Design, Experience and Brand.

Mindful Technology

The design of the unique and innovative interface applies technology in a mindful way. Silent at first glance, the circular interface only lights up when needed. The circular "lens" design appears friendly and inviting to touch.

The camera is centered in the middle of the “eye”, to take images for transparency and security. The "lens" is packed with technology creating a transferable module used on all Latch products that is essential for the startups ability to quickly scale.

Manufactured to industry leading specifications, Latch's high quality locks that are a long term investment in your safety and flexibility. Latch is built to last and to withstand the harshest elements. The versatile smart lock supports online delivery of goods, the growing sharing economy, and unburdens the user from the physical key or waiting for service people, freeing up time in our busy lives.

Universal Design

The simple design fits into a wide range of architectural environments enabling the startup to reach it's goal of becoming a widely adopted, ubiquitous access system.

Latch is both inviting and protective, a contemporary take on the classic lock that communicates trust, longevity, and mindfulness.

We carefully crafted an innovative touch interface that is embedded in an orbicular lens, the unblinking eye, placed within a design that feels familiar and is easy to use. The materials and technologies where chosen carefully to deliver longevity in form & function.
