Valentin Garal’s XXY door series is a line of wooden doorknobs. The name XXY alludes to the doorknobs’ masculine-meets-feminine aesthetic. Handcrafted from ash-turned wood, the doorknobs’ simple elegance blends with rustic or sleek interiors.The doorknobs are produced upon request and sized to buyer specification.
