Characterised by its sleek and stylish shape, From The Anvil's Brompton Suite is one of their most contemporary designs to date. Following it's initial launch in 2021, this collection was so popular with customers that it's been expanded to include a more extensive set of products.

How is Knurled Hardware Made?

All of From The Anvil's hardware is hand forged by their expert Blacksmiths. The Brompton Collection utilises the same quality materials and traditonal manufacturing techniques as existing collections to create products that will last a lifetime. 

Each Brompton product is heated to high temperatures and forged into shape on an anvil. Once cooled, the feature part of the product is rolled with a lathe to create an intricate cross-hatching on the surface. It's this pattern that gives the Brompton Collection its dynamic and futuristic edge.

The Inspiration Behind the Brompton Collection

The Brompton Collection is inspired by the Industrial Revolution of 18th century Britain. A period in time where change was prevalent and efficiency was paramount. To honour this era, the Brompton Collection puts users first, offering a surface that is both tactile to grip and pleasing to look at.

Despite the subtle influence of minimalism on this design, the Brompton Collection is a far cry from plain. Each etched diamond works together in harmony, adding intrigue to any space.
