Nest Studio is a luxury hardware atelier founded by designer Jessica Davis. Nest develops innovative decorative hardware that involves mixed materials and high-end finishes in a variety of sizes and applications. With the ability to forecast trends before they happen and the nimble production and sourcing capabilities of a small firm, Nest prides itself in being able to produce small runs, unique finishes, and bespoke items that are at the forefront of design. Nest Studio works with a variety of design firms, customizing pieces for both residential and hospitality projects. The brand’s team of product designers and engineers strive to create designs that allow for the perfect blend of form and function.
By working with wood workers, jewelry makers, weavers and potters, Jessica is constantly searching for ways to innovate and evolve hardware design. She has sourced makers all the way from Hilo, Hawaii to locally in Brooklyn, NY, collaborating with them to bring their artistry and craft into the hardware realm. Nest Studio works with these artisans every step of the way, combining skill sets, production methods and materials to ensure the pieces are not only functional but also form a cohesive, one-of-a-kind collection. The first of Nest Studio’s artisan collaborations - the Glaze Series - transformed ceramicist Jonathan Castro ribbed vessels into sculptural pieces for cabinetry, doors and furniture. The collection contrasts the organic nature of ceramics with the hard lines of brass turnings.
