curated by Steven and William Ladd

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.

The Invisible Dog Store is a group of objects created for and inspired by the transition of a belt and buckle factory into an arts institution. The Ladd brothers included the objects they made and invited a few of the people they love to submit objects.
