    Tom Kundig Collection First of Several from Olson Kundig

     In the first of several product launches planned by Olson Kundig Architects, the Seattle-based firm has introduced its Tom Kundig Collection of 24 cut-and-folded steel accessories. The line consists of products ranging from cabinet and door pulls to rollers that are made by Seattle-based 12th Avenue Ironfrom hot-rolled steel, then finished and waxed to reveal subtle manufacturing marks. The collection's focus stems from principal/owner Tom Kundig's interest in the ways people interact with structures where the simple act of opening a door becomes a ballet between user and structure. "I want to make the parts of buildings you touch every day an enjoyable experience,"Kundig says.  The new line's low-tech approach provides an unpretentious, yet tactile encounter with the built environment.
