Executive – Modern Style – 1918-2000
Modern architecture or modernist architecture is a term applied to an overarching movement, with its exact definition and scope varying widely. The term is often applied to modernist movements at the turn of the 20th century, with efforts to reconcile the principles underlying architectural design with rapid technological advancement and the modernisation of society. It would take the form of numerous movements, schools of design, and architectural styles, some in tension with one another, and often equally defying such classification.
The term Modern architecture may be used to differentiate from Classical architecture following Vitruvian ideals, while it is also applied to various contemporary architecture styles such as Postmodern, High-tech or even New Classical, depending on the context. In art history, the revolutionary and neoclassical styles that evolved around 1800 are also called modern.
The concept of modernism is a central theme in the efforts of 20th century modern architecture. Gaining global popularity especially after the Second World War, architectural modernism was adopted by many architects and architectural educators, and continued as a dominant architectural style for institutional and corporate buildings into the 21st century.
We have created a Collection of products all hand crafted and forged or cast from premium grade solid brass also covering door handles, door knobs and a range of other accessories, all reflecting the new order of this era.
As was common in this architectural period most Liberty products are face fixed to the door with exposed screw heads (fittings are supplied). All door knobs and levers are sold in pairs but they can be ordered singularly if specifically required. Knobs and levers are left unsprung as we rely on the latch or lock mechanism to return them to their natural horizontal setting.
All Executive products are available in our extensive range of surface patinations. See our Finishes page to find out more.
Please browse through the product types to view the Collection.
