We welcome you to join us in the celebration of the international launch of MATUREWARE and the first complete Futagami home goods showcase on the evening of Wednesday May 11th, 2016, at Nalata Nalata.
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.
