Originally sculpted by hand here in NYC these unique floating astronaut knobs are a wonderful addition to detail your home. . They look just great on a cupboard or cabinet. They are real sturdy and comfortable on the hand.
Specs : 2 inches tall and 1.2 inches wide. 50mm tall and 21mm wide
I use new drawer pull hardware. The length of the screw is 1 1/2 cm or almost 3/4 inch. The screw is a standard drawer pull diameter. In most cases the existing hole in your drawer or cupboard will work fine.
Material : Cast in solid white metal (pewter) and plated in silver with an oxide to bring out the detail.
Unique features : Well no one else in the world makes these. A survey of cabinet knobs in the world leaves one feeling sort of " meh..." I want to make details for your home that raise eyebrows and have your guests thinking " those people are pretty cool huh? "
You can loosen and reposition the astronauts knobs so that they float in different positions. They could be a bell weather for your mood in the office. Is everything all wrong today? Have them upside down!
Where did this idea come from ?
To be honest I saw this really impressive collection of astronaut sculptures at Krause Gallery in the Lower East Side. Some of my friends exhibit there. The artist's name is Emil Alzmora http://www.krausegallery.com/WP/emil-alzamora/ . I was at the museum of natural history and saw a photo exhibit of space walking this summer and that sealed it for me.
