The Tom Kundig Collection
April 16, 2012
After years of collaboration on custom steel architectural elements and furnishings with Seattle-based metal shop 12th Avenue Iron, Olson Kundig Architects has now designed the firm’s first line of commercially available products to be fabricated by the shop. The Tom Kundig Collection includes 25 unique cut-and-folded steel hardware pieces ranging from door pulls to rollers. According to firm principal Tom Kundig, the midpoint-price-range line “is an opportunity for us to take our approach to full-service design projects and provide it to a broader audience.” Inspired by the way people interact with their structures, each piece is fabricated in steel by handmade and machine processes, then hand-finished and waxed.
