M.Spring Studio’s 3D-printed decorative hardware is a modern twist on traditional designs

Those aren't stylish jewelry you're seeing above - they're actually 3D-printed drawer pulls designed and fabricated by Brooklyn-based M.Spring Studio. Founded by metalsmith and former software professional Margaret Spring, the design studio specializes in developing and prototyping decorative and functional metal hardware like door and drawer pulls using a combination of traditional techniques and emerging technology like 3D printing. If you'd like to learn more about M.Spring's process, the company will be showcasing its own line of beautiful hardware at BKLYN Designs 2015.

"Unique and timeless designs are at the heart of the M.Spring Hardware collection, but sustainability is significantly reflected in our dual mission to support regional craftsmanship and provide premium furniture hardware," says Spring. "We see sustainable benefits in the development and retention of skilled, local craftspeople; limited transportation during production creating a smaller carbon footprint; a rapid and agile development process to support small, custom production runs; and creating a long-lasting, functional product that will age beautifully on any furniture which it is used."

Margaret's surprisingly tactile and charming hardware breathes new life through the power of thoughtful design into an object that most people never think twice about.

"A drawer pull is something you are touching all of the time in your home, so I wanted these pulls to feel great in your hand, and make you smile every time you pull one" says Spring. She works with a fourth generation casting service to fabricate the raw, solid brass and bronze castings for their hardware line. The pieces are all finished in their Brooklyn studio, and are made to last a lifetime.
