Not simply an adaptation of Japanese patterns to metal, these handles offer a richly nuanced expression and 3-dimensional character. This series lets you enjoy both the charm of Japanese designs and texture of the handles’ surface. The Japanese flavor is a beautiful addition to modern rooms.
Viewed head-on the handle appears to have edges, but on closer inspection reveals a beautifully rounded surface that subtly yet delightfully betrays the user. Encapsulating the movements of time, these handles blend (najimu) with people and spaces as if existing there for decades.
The area for resting the thumb features a slight protuberance prompting the user’s movement, while the wood and mirrored stainless steel interweave in a satisfying composition. This piece carries a hidden message which speaks to the viewer out of its standard form.
The beautiful L shape alludes to a solid form, while its floating appearance conjures a sense of weightlessness. The handle’s structure is set entirely back, creating a unified body with the mounting plate and eliminating any unnecessary movement when turning. Presenting a new sense of perfection.
Reminiscent of a metal flat bar, this product’s seamless design flawlessly connects the leather handle, shaft and mounting plate. Creating a unified body, the form is subtle yet chic and employs a new mechanism where both handle and mounting plate turn simultaneously.
