KIT&Co. DESIGNS AND MANUFACTURES UNIQUE HARDWARE
WHY KIT STARTED:
KIT was started because we give a damn about the things we buy, the things we create for work, how we spend our time, and who we spend our time with. We were tired of disposable furniture. We wanted to come up with different solutions to help us build things with a story, learn new skills, and make things we care about.
WHO THIS IS FOR:
KIT has been built for you. For people who want better things. Things you care about. For people who want to get involved and build something unique rather than buy another disposable piece of furniture. For expert builders who want beautiful high-quality steel hardware and for novices who want to make their first project.
HOW IT WORKS:
We provide the hardware and supporting material. This includes downloadable 3d models of our hardware, cut sheets, and directions on how to build our KITs. We also link you to our growing network of wood and hardware suppliers, KIT retail partners, and online builders who can help you with your project ideas.
