Inspired by one of the founding fathers of the British Industrial Revolution, Sir Richard Arkwright, this collection is an ode to Britain’s prodigious influence on what is known as the transition to advanced manufacturing processes in both Europe and the United States.
Rich elements of industrial design are still prevalent today in locations such as Shad Thames. The historical cobbled street features a myriad of industrial style metalwork seen predominantly in the gantries that connect buildings on either side of the street.
The Arkwright collection features an I-beam profile, as seen in factories and many civil construction projects during the industrial era. By uniting industrial style design with the classic Joseph Giles aesthetic, we achieve a beautiful interplay of industrial building materials with decorative door handles.
