Object of Desire: Hand-Forged “Jewelry” for the Kitchen and Bath from Mi and Gei

January 29, 2021

Discovered via Casson in Canada: the new (and glamorous) Mi & Gei line of cast brass hardware for the bath and kitchen. According to founder and designer Amandine Schira, “Our name refers to the Japanese folk art movement that highlights everyday objects. We’ve tried to thoughtfully combine French aesthetics with traditional Indian design techniques; the pieces are hand cast in Mumbai, using only recycled brass and bronze salvaged from dismantled boats.”

All products are available in three finishes: natural brass, oil  rubbed bronze, and nickel.

Here’s a look:
