Hammer & Smith is a design studio and product manufacturer founded in 2011. The studio works across a wide range of scales and disciplines, from leather accessories and footwear, to leather apparel, furniture, and lifestyle products. Taking an industrial approach to craft, Hammer & Smith began simply with a goal to create long-lasting designs with carefully considered details and construction techniques. By this process, products are continually refined over time—rather than in response to a market calendar or set schedule—and introduced as they reach a level of quality and utility.
This kind of meditative deliberation is evident in the details of the studio’s work. Shelving units find an elegant simplicity in spare joinery details inspired by Japanese woodworking, while small leather goods are patterned with architectural precision and meticulously stitched by hand. Each Hammer & Smith design is the result of a rigorous process that values quality, refinement, and simplicity as necessary traits for an object of everyday use. Premium cow leather messenger bag, a minimalistic wallet, and a wood-and-steel table are among the common items made by Hammer & Smith with attention and care. These handcrafted details forge a dialogue between the designer, maker, and user, and often, a sense of community. Reflecting the studio’s commitment to socially responsible labor practices, all Hammer & Smith products are made in Pakistan, with the majority of work being done within 50 kilometers of the studio.
