Samples of the new Utility Archive hardware designs in raw aluminium. We wanted hardware with a robust aesthetic, like our archive pieces, but with modern functionality. Also, all hardware should match. Not available. So we designed it ourselves. The full hardware set is aluminium, no plastic on any of our products. We chose aluminium as it’s lightweight, strong and doesn’t corrode. It can also be recycled. We’re working on recycling - repurposing program for all products and raw materials, more detail on that in the new website, coming soon. Getting a little ahead of ourselves? Not really, our viewpoint on sustainability is woven into the fabric of brand.
