It’s all about the details, introducing Du Verre … a BlogTourNYC sponsor
Designers know that Mies van de Rohe was speaking sense when he said it’s all about the details. After choosing the kitchen cabinets, the appliances and the worktops you then need to specify handles. They’re a very important aspect that need serious consideration – do you want to make a feature of them or is subtlety required? Today in our series of Blog Tour NYC posts we are featuring hardware manufacturer and tour sponsor Du Verre.
Du Verre produce a comprehensive range of kitchen hardware that works well across many different kitchen styles. The company uses a selection of designers that ensures there is something for every look. The Forge range by Heinz Pfleger even looks cool when it is hanging out with some tasty looking cheese!
With today’s eco friendly consumers demanding more visibility on the origin of products Du Verre is a great choice to specify. The handles are made entirely from recycled aluminium. Using this recycled metal reduces the energy requirement needed to manufacture their hardware. Not producing new metal also reduces the greenhouse gases emitted. These factors make Du Verre a very valid green choice for hardware.
The Primitive range was designed by Irish born designed Clodagh. This design works very well with the current trend of geometric patterns on products. Big and chunky the handle shown is 42cm long so it would make a great statement in your kitchen – imagine using this to open your fridge every morning?
Also designed by Clodagh the Tribal range has more subtle styling. This range was inspired by the weaving sticks of Africa – this is very apparent in the organic sweeping shape of the pull handles. This range is available in either knobs or pulls and in four different finishes.
Du Verre are currently looking for a UK distributor so hopefully we will soon be able to use their hardware on our cupboards. Their hardware range would suit anywhere you need a handle, don’t feel you have to keep them for the kitchen. Take a look at their website and let me know which are your own favourites? I have my eye on the Offset collection …
