MATUREWARE by Futagami - Exhibition - May 11-17 - NYC

MATUREWARE, an architectural hardware line by time-honored Japanese brass foundry, Futagami, is designed by YAMAZAKI Yoshiki and directed by OJI Masanori. The nearly fifty-piece collection features the company's signature crude-cast texture called IHADA, throughout a range of solid brass fixtures for commercial and residential spaces. The texture produced by sand-casted molds, ages with time, eventually producing a rich patina unique to Futagami's solid brass objects.

The collection currently offers fixtures in 5 categories: Door Handles, Switch Plates, Shelf Brackets, Latches and Name Plaques.

Launching internationally during NYCxDesign week at Nalata Nalata, the MATUREWARE collection represents a pioneering endeavor for handcrafted brass objects in the realm of architectural hardware.
