“It's what you touch so it needs to be nice,” Kanner says of the high-end choices he makes when specing hardware. He cites Sugatsune as a favorite supplier because the company's products meet his quality standards and match his firm's minimalist aesthetic. The manufacturer of pulls, handles, knobs, and other door and drawer components works primarily in brass, zinc alloy, stainless steel, and aluminum.
