Steven and William Ladd first visited The Invisible Dog in the summer of 2009. The brothers have been collaborating for the past 10 years. A commission to build a chandelier for the space led to a lasting friendship with the director, a love for the space, and an influx of materials into their studio. The materials – industrial belt and buckle parts – were left over from the factory’s heyday. They utilized the materials to hand-make beautiful design objects.
With the collaboration of Miggy Buck, Liz Burow, Carlton Dewoody, Roy Glorioso, Alicia Kelley Lapp, Ethan Long, Shane Powers, Chauanda Tan & Ecosystems
