The perfect balance between Design and Tradition

According to his design, a door handle, window handle, furniture handle and furniture knob have been developed.

This new collection’s design is a sober but timeless one. All the door, window and furniture fittings are cast in sand moulds, just like the Dauby Pure collection.

“The combination of the brutality of the materials offers the trendy items a characteristic look. This is what makes a Dauby door, window or furniture fitting so powerful. You’re not buying a shiny designer item, but a piece of traditional craftsmanship. As a designer, I take pride in that”, says Tom Lenaerts.

This collection will be available in 6 different materials:

  • Aged Iron
  • Raw Metal
  • Raw Bronze
  • Polished Raw Bronze
  • White Bronze
  • Satin White Bronze

“Less is more, form follows function”

For his designs, he returns to the basic idea of an object. And he creates tension by means of penetrating volumes, as you can clearly see in the case of the door handle and the door grip.
