Noted design critic Byron Hawes traces the history of Supreme's industrial design objects, from cheeky early objects like a skate tool that moonlights as a pipe and a low-key Fuck Tha Police branded tallboy paper bag through to notable collaborations with the likes of Spalding, Louisville Slugger, Everlast, and more, positing a theory that 'Preme's design output is actually a highly curated alt-design museum, proposing an ongoing series of highly important and overlooked quotidian industrial design icons. Examples include a Lezyne bike pump, Master combination locks, Box Logo Buck knives, a Braun alarm clock, Maglites, a Kidde Fire Extinguisher, and the ever-controversial brick; design icons all, though not typically mentioned in the same conversation as other iconic pieces of 20th century industrial design. Featuring conversations with noted collectors and designers, as well as original photography of the only known complete collection of Supreme accessories and stickers, Object Orie
