BlogTour London: Du Verre - Hardware That Makes a Difference


The selection of hardware throughout the design of a space, is such a crucial detail, and at times can be overlooked.
But, the truth is, it is one of us "designer's" dirty secrets - as we can take the most mundane piece and transform literally in an instance, with the application of some exquisite hardware.
Design is in the Details!

The inclusion of the firm, Du Verre, was therefore no surprise to me as one of the wonderful sponsors of BlogTour London.

Du Verre has raised the bar on innovative hardware design and the sustainable use of materials.

"Thanks to progressive manufacturing methods, each piece of die cast hardware is crafted in eco-friendly recycled aluminum that is fully compatible with LEED objectives. Known for originality, sculptural designs, warm textures and beautiful finishes, Du Verre’s hardware collections exude a global elegance and classical silhouette that will suit the highest quality cabinets and fine furniture."





From sleek and smooth - modern design..


Lotus is one of Du Verre's first hardware introductions.
It is designed by William Harvey. 
ARROYO is an elegant and original new series of cabinet knobs and pulls created by award winning designer William Harvey.



Forged 2: Original cabinet hardware designed by the great metal smith, Heinz Pfleger.
Collection made from environmentally friendly recycled aluminum.
 through to the textured and hand crafted designs..


Forged 3: Also designed by the great metal smith, Heinz Pfleger., and one of my favorites.
Textured and retaining the qualities of the original forged pieces, Forged 3 will enhance cabinets and fine furniture & made from environmentally friendly recycled aluminum.




Pomegranate: Inspired by nature, the detailed and beautifully textured design makes a simple, elegant collection that will suit fine cabinets and furniture. Pomegranate is made from environmentally friendly recycled aluminum and designed by  Heinz Pfleger.



Collaborations:


Du Verre Hardware has had the privilege to work with Irish born, NY city based Interior Designer extraordinaire, Clodagh , on three unique hardware collections:
Primitive, Stacked and Tribal.

Clodagh's design aesthetic as seen in some of her work here, truly show her love of travel, and cultural inspiration that has spanned over 90 countries and with a design experience from Residential through to the most exquisite hotels and product design.

Another wonderful collaboration between the worlds of Interior Design and Product development, are a the way that brands can reach across to a much wider audience, and it is so refreshing how these such partnerships, just like the one I shared about with Nina Campbell in a previous Blog Tour post, are making the world of product development a richer creative environment for all.




Thank you to all the sponsors and Modenus for organizing this amazing event - which has now started and if you are following along on the social media networks with me you will be hearing the up to the minute news!
