If you’re not aware of Good Thing, take a look at our archives where we’ve featured the NY-based brand’s everyday objects since they launched back in 2014. They’ve been creating practical goods but with more thought put into each design and the brand continues that same idea with the unveiling of furniture, lighting, and rugs. Along with Good Thing’s founder, Jamie Wolfond, they’ve reached out to the likes of MSDS Studio, Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Visibility, and Sam Anderson for this latest round of releases. Take a look.
The 6063 Stool, by Toronto-based design studio MSDS Studio, pays homage to the glory days of American manufacturing with the use of pure aluminum alloy, which is how it got its name. The stackable stool merges a modern design sensibility with traditional craftsmanship to result in something unique and new.
Chen Chen & Kai Williams designed the Pearl Tables, which come in three different sizes that can be used alone or in various compositions. The holes that normally get plugged to hide the design’s fasteners are turned into design elements by filling them with opalescent shells from sea snails.
Good Thing’s founder, Jamie Wolfond, is the designer behind the Arid Umbrella Stand. Working with the terracotta clay’s properties, the stand draws moisture away from your wet umbrella so it easily dries when you get home and stow it away.
The Cabin Pendants (Small and Large) were designed by Visibility to resemble the geometric form of a space shuttle’s cabin. Each fixture disperses light from the opening on the bottom, along with the soft glow permeating from the frosted shade.
Sam Anderson was inspired by the Bauhaus movement when designing the Falling Line Rugs (Small or Large). The handwoven rugs give way to color experimentations with bold palettes producing the linear designs.
