After decades of experience as an interior designer, the owner´s passion is to design interiors that resonate with people emotionally and aesthetically. The company has a strong heritage and is a multidisciplinary design studio, that creates collections comprised of hardware, home fragrance, objects, lighting, and furniture, as well as designing interiors for private residences and commercial projects. Their designs draw on an eclectic mix of influences, eras, and materials to curate a cohesive look that is understated, elegant, and enduring. The company believes a space should reflect the personal expression of the people who inhabit it. They say it is all about creating a bespoke look that the customers can call their own.

Their collections contribute to an atmosphere of understated elegance to create inviting and intuitive spaces with personality. Cosmopolitan yet classic, raw yet refined, and with an overall attention to detail.

The company is driven by aesthetics, honesty, and integrity. From the natural, noble materials they use to the incomparable craftsmanship of every product in their portfolio. They are uncompromising when it comes to quality, craftsmanship and aesthetics.

The company is looking for a partner that can manufacture high-end handles and door hardware. It would be preferable they are based in Eastern Europe but expressions of interest from companies from other EU countries are also welcome.
Advantages and Innovations
The company's advantage is their strong design DNA and uncompromising approach to each product when it comes to materials and shapes - and the photo database and aesthetics that surround the company in all that they do.
Furthermore, their products make it possible to create a semi-unique look and style as they have many combination options with different crossbar options but still have a recognizable design that people are proud of.
