House of Eroju started in 1997 in London, by Brothers Keji and Tunde Eroju. Although both had a creative flare for design, the decision to start the business and pivot it towards Architectural ironmongery, was birthed after they were presented with the challenge of skillfully hand-weaving leather strips onto 3 meter length cylindrical Iroko handles. Here on spurned their interest in exploring the world of Architectural ironmongery combining the use of natural materials with steel as an expression of their creative prowess.
At the House of Eroju their artisanal skills and expertise are inspired by Architecture. While Architecture is about space and light, the Handle on the other hand is about form, touch, texture and hold and although being an extrusion of the overall architectural experience, the handle is arguably the only component in the building which privileges the sense of touch.
This has been one of the House of Eroju’s central preoccupations, hence the use of different materials and application techniques from leather, Marble, Concrete to the use of woods, as well as the incorporation of traditional weaving and wrapping techniques on to Architectural hardware which best reflects the spaces they inhabit.
Over the years the House of Eroju has developed a range of other products and continues to use its signature on a host of its other product offerings. From small leather accessories to Handrails and Lighting products.
To date House of Eroju has been involved with a number of high profile projects both locally and internationally. Terminal 4 heathrow Airport, London.
