Our product designers, with Workshop/APD’s warm modern aesthetic in mind, set out to create a collection that would provide subtle shine, texture and interest to doors and cabinets. The result is the Looking Glass Collection, which is inspired by textured, patinated forms sliced through to reveal gleaming interiors. The contrast of matte exteriors and “sliced” surfaces, polished to a high shine as if they had not yet been touched by the outside world creates a lovely tactile experience for the user.
To ensure that the collections forms would also feel incredible in hand, our design team did extensive 3D modeling, landing on a unique, rounded oblong shape repeated in the collection’s escutcheons as well as a unique pill-shaped door pull and lever handle. A sliced-round door knob is also available in addition to cabinetry and appliance pulls, and recessed pulls for sliding doors. Often challenged to find beautiful large-scale hardware for tall doors and cabinets, we also created dramatic 12” cabinet pulls and 24” door pulls. The collection is meticulously crafted by S.A. Baxter’s artisans in solid bronze, and is available in a range of finishes
