The Edwin range is inspired by the Brutalist architecture movement of the 50s-70s. Brutalism often involved heavy, block like shapes made with strong materials in order to create buildings that were sturdy in look and design, yet that still had an air of unconventional beauty to them. One such building is the Trellick Tower, designed by Ernő Goldfinger, and situated in the distinguished district of Chelsea. It was completed in 1972 after the Greater London Council commissioned it, bringing a new stark style to the classic aesthetic of the neighbourhood. As such, it has appeared in numerous films, television shows, and music videos for quintessential British bands like Blur; largely due to its strong presence and unmistakable design.
The Edwin cabinet pull mirrors the boldness of Brutalism; matching its solid brass material with its robust shape. However, with its fine craftsmanship and beautiful solid brass form, it adds a luxurious spin to a movement that prefers simple, solid shapes. The design of this handle proves that raw shapes and forms can be truly beautiful; and with this cabinet pull comes a mini revival of this movement, calling forth a historical aesthetic that reshaped modern architecture in the mid-20th Century.
