The Bauhaus was both an influential art and design school and a school of thought. Founded by Walter Gropius, a German architect, the school sought to combine all forms of art, including architecture, together in practice. The style most associated with the Bauhaus is one that is void of ornamentation, and one that combines form and function harmoniously in its design. The ‘Archibald’ was designed with these principles in mind. Its shape is simple, unobstructed, and also visually interesting with its subtle details, such as the smooth chamfer, which also allows for a better grip. The door knobs have been designed using solid brass form and expert craftsmanship, and with right care will last a lifetime. We believe that the ‘Archibald’ adds a subtle accent of beauty and harmony into your space, it’s a great example to prove form does not have to overshadow function, and function does not have to overshadow form. With the ‘Archibald’ collection, you get both; as one should never have to choose.
