Door hardware manufacturer Designer Doorware has released a new collection of products that combine raw concrete with a variety of metals.
The Bullet+Stone collection draws inspiration from Brutalist architecture, but it also meets the demand for concrete in home décor that’s trending at the moment, the company says.
“The look and feel of concrete is enduring in architecture, and the Bullet+Stone collection offers an update on this timeless classic by melding the cool, raw material with warm, luxurious metals,” explains Joseph Di Benedetto, executive director of the company. “The resulting sculptural pieces allow designers and consumers to explore new realms of design.”
Available in handles and knobs, the collection is handcrafted with an artisanal concrete mixture formulated for durability, texture, and sustainability, the company says. The design and construction of the pieces allows users to observe both finishes simultaneously.
Every handle features the variations in shade, color, and natural imperfections that define rough, exposed concrete, and each one is backed with solid brass fittings in a handful of finishes that include Satin Black Chrome, Polished Nickel, and Florentine Bronze, among others.
Bullet+Stone includes the Concrete Club lever handle (a relaxed take on modern silhouettes with fully rounded edges); the Concrete Quad lever handle, featuring straight, squared edges; and the Concrete Niki (a perfectly round knob). The concrete comes standard in a Luna Grey finish, but custom finishes are available upon request.
The hardware’s concealed fixing is suitable for all door thicknesses, the manufacturer adds.
