Christina Z Antonio Spotlights Nature’s Perfect Imperfections in Hardware Collection
Since starting her eponymous New York City atelier in 2005, Christina Z Antonio has been fusing luxe materials into architectural hardware, lighting, and furniture. Her latest hardware collection, Rare Earth, sets minerals and semiprecious gems such as faceted agate, banded jasper, rose quartz, malachite, pyrite, and lapis lazuli in polished or satin nickel and brass or antique-bronze casings. The stone for each knob or pull is hand-selected to create a family of unique architectural accents that highlight what the artist calls “the perfect imperfections of the natural world.” And because of the bespoke nature of each piece, custom material combinations are available upon request.
