The SW doorknob reinterprets the classic doorknob profile into an understated minimal form. The need for the design and manufacture of doorknobs came from a frustration at the scarcity of well-designed door ironmongery, sympathetic to both modern and contemporary contexts. The doorknobs are made of solid unlacquered brass and each one is finished by hand. To manufacture the handles we have worked in close collaboration with Birmingham-based ironmongery manufacturer Frank Allart, who used over 100 years’ experience to help realise this exceptionally high-quality door furniture.
The doorknobs come in a range of finishes including burnished brass (pictured in first 3 photographs), polished brass, polished bronze, and brushed chromium. All finishes are left unlacquered and so will develop a rich patina over time, which can be polished back to full shine or left as desired.
