Good Thing Launches the Utility Mirror by Visibility
The Utility Mirror is made by polishing a piece of stainless steel to a perfect mirror finish and dipping it in industrial rubber tool grip. By celebrating the marriage of these industrial methods, the object encourages use with the language of utility.
The Utility Mirror will debut in several pop-up shops and design events throughout the USA and abroad, including the American Deisgn Club Pop-Up Shop, Design Miami/Basel, Tictail's Manhattan pop-up shop, and Wanted Design's Made in Brooklyn Holiday Market.
We're having a party in our new studio! Come on over to check out the space and see what we're working on. We'll be serving frozen margaritas.

Good Thing Launches
Introducing Good Thing, new manufacturer of small products and accessories based in Brooklyn, New York. Good Thing produces objects that are minimal, considered and expressive by pairing the talent of America's most innovative young designers with domestic vendors.
Jamie Wolfond (RISD BFA '13) founded Good Thing to meet the challenge of producing inexpensive products locally. Jamie has a great track record for finding original ways of bridging the gap between design and production, and with the help of several New York-based artists and designers, has expanded his operation by developing a collection of astoundingly simple-to-produce products.
While more and more design studios are producing their work in-house or in collaboration with local trades, it seems as though making the goods affordably and making them here are mutually exclusive. "Rather than the traditional route of providing a vendor with a complete idea of what a product will be, we bring the manufacturer into the design process," Wolfond says. "The changes we make once a producer is involved lead to some of the best ideas we encounter."
The launch of Good Thing represents the combined effort of several young NYC designers, artists and vendors, whose work makes up the ten debut collection, including Sam Anderson, Elliot Camarra, Jon Lucas, Jamie Wolfond, Benjamin Kicic, and Guy Kozak. The entire collection will debut at NY Now's Accent on Design from August 16th - 20th. Good Thing will be at booth #3849.
