Arch Products: 12th Avenue Iron
Reach out and touch…your surroundings. That’s the idea behind the Tom Kundig Collection of hardware, according to the Seattle-based Olson Kundig principal.The Interior Design Hall of Famer lavishes attention on those building elements we physically interact with, viewing them as opportunities to have a positive impact on end users’ experiences. The low-tech grouping in waxed steel offers tactile moments that aren’t overly stylized. The portfolio’s latest entries are a nine-piece hook series, cabinet pulls, bathroom hardware, lighting, and a pocket-door pull with integral latch. Innovative forms include metal drawer pulls shaped like folded leather, an industrial-looking pulley system that’s actually an adjustable pendant lamp, and a quartet of simple tables. 12thavenueiron.com.
