Maybe you can’t yet afford an Olson Kundig house, but you might just be able to splurge on some special Kundig hardware. There’s twenty-five cut-and-folded steel products- from cabinet pulls to various door hardware- each fabricated by 12th Avenue Iron. As usual, prepare your wallet for specialty hardware prices ($19+ per drawer pull will add up pretty quickly).
“The Tom Kundig Collection is a steel accessory line focused on intimately scaled hardware components. Each piece celebrates the moments when people become kinetically involved with the buildings and spaces they inhabit. They stand as a tribute to the beauty and pragmatism of nature, from the raw materials we use to build to the way the human body is designed to move – the rational and the poetic. This collection is a low-tech approach to hardware that provides an unpretentious yet tactile encounter with the built environment – a wink and a nod to elements that might otherwise be overly stylized or precious.”Available from http://www.12thavenueiron.com/, 13.00 and up.
