Hardware Store at [storefront] Olson Kundig

Location Seattle, Washington
Director Alan Maskin

An homage to making and craft in its many forms, Hardware Store was a continuation of the firm’s exploratory “store” installations that invited visitors to examine the hinges, doorbells, DIY inventions and tools that are involved in architecture and making.

The installation included tributes to Gulassa & Co. and Hardwick Brothers Hardware, two family businesses that play significant roles in the realm of craft in Seattle, an exhibit highlighting gizmologist Phil Turner’s career and a “How to Design a Hardware Line” exhibit featuring Tom Kundig’s recently developed product line, the Tom Kundig Collection. Hardware Store featured a one-of-a-kind collection of seminal, strange and extraordinary pieces of hardware donated by a diverse range of community members, from dancers and chefs to farmers and general contractors.

There’s something incredibly beautifully and elegant about a well-made tool…it is a perfect solution to a problem.
