Mirage: A Collection of Architecturally-Inspired Handles and Knobs

We’ve featured the concrete wares of Material Immaterial studio, who up till now has designed a collection of earrings, cufflinks, and mini buildings that we still covet. Now, they’re launching a series of concrete components, called Mirage, that can be used as door handles and drawer knobs for those looking for something a bit different than the big box store options.

Similar in design to their previous collections, Mirage offers architectural-inspired details that play with light and shadow, much like you’d experience when viewing the works of architect Carlo Scarpa. The step-like patterns reduce the visual weight of the material giving them an almost delicate appearance, which is juxtaposed with the more solid areas of the handles giving an opposite effect.
