A new design company located in Manitoba, Canada, 2213 describes itself as modern and minimalist, blending German design with Canadian craftsmanship. They currently carry house numbers and mailboxes, but they plan to "expand into every room, wall, nook and cranny of the home."
Mittelstet was born in Kazakhstan, raised in Germany and now resides in Canada. He is the head designer, co-founder and president of 2213, Inc. He was out for a stroll in his neighborhood one evening, and he noticed that all the house numbers were too small, barely visible and not very attractive. He began working on a design that eventually turned in to 2213's 8" and 12" house numbers, which come in corten* steel or powder-coated orange, gray, black and white.
Take a look at 2213's products. I think you'll like them. I definitely plan to keep an eye on what they come up with next.

*Corten steel (often known under the trademark Cor-Ten) is a weathering steel that develops a stable rust-like patina over the course of a few years but doesn't suffer the loss of structural integrity usually caused by rusting.
