The Construct Me! Hardware Collection by Studio Droog, presented in Milan 2015, has won Best Tech for the 5th Edition Milano Design Awards 2015. Droog was among only 15 nominees for the award - the results were revealed Sunday 19th April, 2015 at Teatro Franco Parenti.
In Milan this year, Droog presented their smallest exhibition ever. Droog focused on the smallest parts of furniture and functional elements that are usually not noticeable and often invisible.
Droog's screws, hinges, nuts, nails, brackets and other hardware are super functional - in some cases the designers even extended their function - but they also add value, character and a richer narrative. In Droog's created collection, one will find nails that reduce the risk of hitting your finger, two way tie wraps, fancy hinges and screws that smile at you. They give flavour to simple DIY work, revive existing furniture and challenge the designer.
The collection of 210 hardware items will be presented in its natural habitat, an ordinary hardware store. Visitors where invited to come, see, and purchase our “screwy” smileys from the gumball vending machine.
