Top Knobs, known for their exceptional kitchen cabinet hardware, announces the launch of their Ultra Contemporary Collection. A mix of styles from strong Asian influences to minimalist lines offer designers a wide selection of elegant pieces to enhance today's modern kitchen environments. Available in four finishes including Brushed Satin Nickel, Black, Tuscan Bronze and Polished Chrome. Top Knobs Ultra Contemporary Collection will be available to consumers and designers this summer.
Over a > MORE century ago, influential modern architects traveled the world and were especially influenced by Asian architectural details, furniture and art, states David Tyler, VP of Marketing for Top Knobs. And what is modern or contemporary today - encompasses a wide array of styles and influences. But what inspired our Ultra Contemporary Collection is the simplicity of form and sophistication of style. In some of the pieces, you see distinct Asian details. In a few of the handles and pulls you feel the artisans pushing the envelopes of technology to achieve a fine line or handle that is at once delicate, yet stalwart, explains Tyler. There's a resurgence in contemporary kitchen design. As our lives become increasing complex, there's a desire to simplify and to control one's home environment - to de-clutter. The green movement also has influenced our desires for ornate detailing - to conserve. Finally, the economy has made us take a step back from material things. We want to display our good taste but in a way that's non-ornamental. That's simplified. And more sophisticated.
