Trained as a Silversmith and worked under Australian and German masters Ned Vernon looks through a different lens of architectural hardware. Taking a considered approach of new and traditional techniques, that looks beyond commercial considerations of mass production. With a veneration of noble materials and a desire to produce lasting objects that become a meaning part of someones home, and hopefully last through generations. With the time spent in Germany and other European capitals Ned noticed doors and the hardware were carefully crafted objects that referenced the architecture and the time period.
Different cultural rituals and mythical symbolism of the door, such as protection, transience, and the family unit is used as inspiration along with the design movements of Brutalism and Italian mid century.
Using traditional techniques V.Brokkr produces limited editions and has a constantly evolving products line.
