- Contemporary Touchpoints
Known for crafting elevated and sophisticated handle designs, New Zealand brand Windsor Architectural Hardware is dedicated to producing quality pieces, striving to revolutionise the finer details of the home. Continuously seeking to go beyond the traditional, the company has recently launched a range of bespoke solid brass cabinet handles, available in a selection of textured, elegant finishes.
Founded in 1984, Windsor Architectural Hardware has become a leading supplier in boutique, high-end architectural hardware products for homes. Now established within both New Zealand and Australia, the award-winning brand continues to redefine the modest nature of handle hardware. Each innovative design is based upon three fundamental elements – feel, finish and function. It is this dedication to refined elegance that allows Windsor to merge materiality, visuality and design with ergonomics, operation and machinery, creating a series of pieces that are not only striking in appearance but also unmatched in form. Each piece is then hand-finished by the brand’s in-house craftspeople.
Windsor has recently launched a bespoke range of cabinet handles – Orizon, Vertex and Planar – individually reflecting a refined and textured aesthetic. The range is similarly imbued with a modern sophistication that embraces the company’s dedication to quality and craft. Constructed from solid brass, the selection is offered in three lengths of 160, 260 and 360 millimetres, alongside optional round mounting plates as well.
The linear knurled, diamond knurled and plain handle textured options provide suitable selections for a number of interior projects and styles.
The range is also available in a collection of finishes, including Matt Satin Brass, Graphite Nickel, Matt Black and Brushed Nickel, as well as the hand-finished Roman Brass and Dark Roman Brass, which will naturally patina over time.
Whether designing a new home or renovating an interior space, the customisable lengths, textures and finishes allows the latest range to be used in several settings, including kitchens, bathrooms, vanities, wardrobes, linen cupboards and mudrooms. As cabinet handles, each piece provides the opportunity for distinctive characterisation that subtly yet impactfully influences the aesthetic of a space.
As an everyday touchpoint, handles are often overlooked throughout the design process but remain a key element to creating meaningful and functional design. With a selection of products that suit an array of interiors, Windsor Architectural Hardware has crafted a contemporary range of handles that encompass quality and function. Steadfast in the brand’s commitment to development, the hand-finished, bespoke pieces have the ability to profoundly transform any residential home.
