Caav fabricates bold and beautiful door and cabinet hardware made to be seen rather than concealed. The internal mechanism is designed from the ground up specifically so that the external face and handle can be fully customized. Each production run potentially unique, architectural and interior designers can extend their creativity and design themes into practical fixtures that are experienced by their clients throughout their day

​We are dedicated to the revival of custom locksets and cabinet hardware that show off and enrich building designs. Our hardware combines the age-old tradition of customizing to the motifs of the building, with patent-pending mechanisms and precision machined parts built to last generations. With concealed fasteners and limitless design possibilities, Caav hardware complements exceptional homes, offices, and other architectural creations of any style or era. 

Caav Designs was founded in Santa Barbara, California by long-time practitioners in high-end architecture, specialty manufacturing, and design. Currently, our products and services are available to select design professionals on a limited basis. If interested in customizing hardware for your clients, please contact us.
