For You…. For Me…. FORMANI®

They say Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder – OPEN UP! and Behold!

We here at the Ironmonger are delighted to present this élite line of innovative architectural hardware imported from The Netherlands. Exquisitely crafted, clean and neat describe these products created by stellar artisans who explore the power behind simple designs.

FORMANI® partners with the leading Dutch designers. Standouts like Mathieu Bruls, Bob Manders, Edward Van Vliet and the reddot design award winner Tord_Boontje who put Whimsy on display in his Happy Ever After installation (his “Ivy Shadow” light was featured in the May 2015 Interior Design Spring Market issue).

Arguably one of the most notable FORMANI® collaborative efforts is their ‘exclusive worldwide licensing’ of the Piet Boon® hardware and bathroom products. Piet Boon, the international master craftsman, designer and architect, counts 101 Wall Street and The Huys luxury apartments in New York along with The Jane Antwerp restaurant in Belgium among his recent projects. A passion borne of personal experiences fuels his creativity. Symmetry its muse. What Piet Boon deems ‘barefoot chic’ masquerades as posh luxury.
