Purity of form

Sleek edges meet raw texture to deliver an intimate sensory experience in the latest collection by Windsor Architectural Hardware.

Door hardware is no longer just functional, it has become a central design element, as described by Nick Baker from Windsor Architectural Hardware.

Door hardware has had a renaissance of sorts. Once a purely functional aspect of the home environment, it has become a central design element; jewellery for the door, as Windsor Architectural Hardware’s Nick Baker puts it. In the case of Windsor’s collections, that jewellery is the result of decades of learnings and innovation; a level of craftsmanship that can only be achieved by a consistent desire to hone and perfect.

Featuring five locally developed handle styles crafted with solid brass, this collection boasts a range of coordinating accessories and six stunning finishes, including two hand-finished options.

“While functionality still plays a key role, it is the tactility, material and finish evident in the aesthetics of every piece that have become equally as important as their function,” says Nick.

Enter NIDO, Windsor’s latest designer collection, a curation of five handle styles developed locally by the company’s Invercargill-based design team. Constructed with solid brass, the collection features round rose and longplate options with a range of coordinating accessories and is available in four stocked finishes: Matt Black, Brushed Nickel, Graphite Nickel, and Matt Satin Brass, as well as two hand-finished options: Roman Brass and Dark Roman Brass.

Crafted with undeniable skill, Windsor's NIDO collection is mature and elegant, with an industrial touch perfectly suited for residential settings.

The undeniable craftsmanship evident in these pieces allows for a mature and elegant collection that touches on industrial but is also perfectly honed for the residential setting. As with all Windsor products, they blend a purity of form and advanced functionality with artistic finishes. There’s a refined harmony here that’s hard to look past.
