CategoriesNews & Press
The current exhibit — Quality is Contagious: John Economaki and Bridge City Tool Works is featured in the March/April issue of Artscope Magazine. An excerpt from the article is online.
“”Quality is Contagious” showcases the work of industrial designer, innovator and entrepreneur John Economaki, founder of Bridge City Tools of Portland, Oregon. It establishes that hand tools can and should be beautiful to look at and comfortable (ergonomic) to hold, and is appropriately being displayed at Boston’s North Bennet Street School, highly respected as an arts and crafts instructional epicenter providing training in fine craftsmanship and creative entrepreneurship.
The exhibition features a selection of nearly 100 items: exquisitely finished precision tools, wood furniture, design and preparatory sketches and instructional videos showcasing Economaki’s career over a 30-year period.”
