Schwinn Hardware continues its legacy innovative and sustainable design with its newest collection called Vegan by Design. Made from linseed, also known as flaxseed, the natural product used in furniture linoleum, the new collection features four cabinet handle designs, two of which were designed by renowned American innovator and designer Michael Graves.
The four Vegan by Design collections are:
- Schwinn 33828: A strap pull available in six colors – ash, iron, black, dark green, dark blue and burgundy – fastened with brass pins available in three finishes – matte black, polished chrome and brushed brass – for a total of 12 options. The pull is available in 160mm center/center.
- Schwinn 34026-0 and 34026-96: A Michael Graves design of a knob and a pull using vegan furniture linoleum and brass, it is available in burgundy and dark blue with post options in polished chrome or brushed brass. The pull is available in 96mm center/center.
- Schwinn 22447-32: A square and triangle shaped pull that comes in ash, iron, and matte black furniture linoleum paired with a matte black, polished chrome or matte gold base.
The designers at Schwinn Hardware were interested in creating a collection that was not only durable, but one that would leave the smallest carbon footprint. Linoleum is biodegradable and does not release harmful gases or toxins into the air as it breaks down. The Schwinn Vegan by Design collection is safe for the environment, non-allergenic and naturally anti-microbial.
