The Du Verre Story
Du Verre Hardware is the culmination of a life long interest in the creative process.
Drawn to makers and artists, partners Gina Lubin and Gavin McLean, have made a career of collaborating with talented craftspeople, designers and visionaries to produce original artifacts for the home and workplace. Hands on and designers in their own right, Lubin and McLean have helped to realize a sophisticated offering of original ideas and details to enhance everyday life. This collection of sculptural hardware knobs and pulls reflect their classic sensibility.
Our Green Promise
Du Verre has recently moved its primary manufacturing to a modern die casting facility in response to our growing awareness regarding sustainability and the responsible use of resources and materials.
Du Verre manufactures its hardware using post-consumer recycled aluminum. Using post-consumer recycled aluminum reduces the generation of air and water pollution by 95% and requires only 5% of the energy that would otherwise be used in production of new metals. In addition, manufacturing this way generates a small fraction of the greenhouse gasses normally expelled in this process.
By specifying Du Verre Hardware you are supporting LEED objectives.
Die Cast Hardware
Du Verre’s die cast hardware is precision engineered entirely from recycled aluminum. It is elegant, beautiful, environmentally friendly and easy to install.
Du Verre Hardware is finished by hand, small variations in the final color may occur. These variations add warmth and beauty to each piece and are not considered a defect. Please keep that in mind when making your selection.
Sand Cast Hardware
Some designs lend themselves to sand casting. Sand casting is a labor-intensive method of manufacturing hardware that is suitable for producing small batches of unique products. Sand cast pieces may have slight variations in the finishes due to the handmade nature of the fabrication process.
Easy to Clean
Du Verre Hardware is low maintenance and requires a minimum of care. To clean simply dust or polish with a soft dry cloth. Avoid the use of chemicals (harsh cleaners or abrasives) as these can break down the finishes.
Du Verre Hardware is most suitable in interior spaces including bathrooms and kitchens.
