- FEEL, FINISH AND FUNCTION
FEEL, FINISH AND FUNCTION
Approaching architectural hardware based on feel, finish and function – a constantly evolving and experimental ethos – drives Windsor Architectural Hardware. This approach is exemplified in a new lever style featuring linear knurling, further elevating the refined elegance of the brand’s popular NIDO range.
Defined by sleek edges and a raw texture, the NIDO range is made from solid brass and is available in four contemporary finishes – Matt Black, Brushed Nickel, Graphite Nickel and Matt Satin Brass. The range epitomises precision machining and quality craftsmanship, with blank screws for the external side of the thru-fixing for a clean and minimal look.
An extension to the NIDO range, with two new levers embellished with horizontal linear knurling, represents the innovative mindset of Windsor. These knurled handles provide a nuanced tactility whilst referencing the popular reeded and fluted look that is making its way across multiple touchpoints in the home, from island bars and bathroom vanities to glass doors and windows. The detailed linear knurling is further accentuated by Windsor’s signature bespoke hand-finishing – the door handles are hand-finished into Roman Brass or Dark Roman Brass options, adding further depth to the knurling detail.
Quality craftsmanship and highly detailed design are embedded within these new additions to the NIDO range, as Windsor’s design team experimented with the sizing of each linear knurl to ensure a finish that was aesthetically pleasing and felt balanced in the hand. Earlier this year, Windsor’s Product Design and Development Manager, Nick Baker, visited both the Salone de Mobile Design Show in Milan and BAU in Munich, a research trip that validated the team’s design approach for the linear knurling on the NIDO levers.
Minimalism and complexity unite in the new lever style featuring linear knurling within the NIDO range. A natural evolution of industrial elegance, Windsor Architectural Hardware expands its collection of bespoke finishes to reveal the brand’s refined design approach, robust materiality and innovative ethos.
