Shayne Fox’s Geo Knobs Are Our #HardwareGoals

Advertisement

Tired of the usual knobs and pulls, Toronto maker Shayne Fox decided to make gem-like hardware herself

As a long-time designer of movie sets, Shayne Fox has seen a lot of cabinetry hardware. She hasn’t been overly impressed. The kind of pieces that appeal to her – handcrafted yet clean-lined, with a timeless, rustic appeal – have proved elusive, she says. So Fox decided to create them herself. Her eponymous firm, Shayne Fox Hardware, launched in Toronto in 2017, aiming to provide “unique cast-bronze hardware for all interior applications.”

Her debut hardware collection – the Geo series of 30-millimetre-long knobs inspired by crystals – is made the old-fashioned way, from bronze that is hand poured when molten, then tumbled to a supple finish once cool.

To accommodate bolts of various lengths, the threads drilled into the knobs are deep, making them suitable for cabinets and furniture of varying thickness. And because each knob is individually crafted, no two are alike, giving every installation a bespoke quality. “We see each piece,” Fox says, “as a little gem.”

Also available through Casson Hardware, which was profiled in Two Architects, One Killer Hardware Boutique.
