Good Thing launches architectural silicone bowls at NYC Restaurant Week
The Brooklyn-based design label Good Thing has yet to put a foot wrong in its four years of being. Highly regarded as being a source for affordable, clever design and a champion of emerging design talent, Good Thing’s ever-expanding collection welcomed a new range of architectural silicone containers, during NYC Restaurant Week 2018 (July 23 - August 27).
Shinya Yoshida, a Tokyo-based industrial designer who was a car mechanic before starting his eponymous design firm, has created the new G3 Vessels, which are composed of flowing compound curves that draw inspiration from the automotive industry. Yoshida’s strong affection for basic materials and components carries through in the fundamental functionality that underlines the simple forms.
Made from silicone, the G3 vessels are extremely versatile and easily slot into bathrooms, offices and kitchens for use. Available in contemporary hues, including a bluish-black, an olive green, a fresh mint, rusty red and grey-toned white, this latest release is a continuation of Good Thing’s ongoing experimentation with open-ended product typologies. Be it stamps, make-up brushes, pencils or nuts, each container neatly holds loose bits in an elegant manner.
In fact, because the vessels are food-safe, Good Thing partnered up with New York hotspots Mission Chinese Food and Lalito to debut the new wares. Diners were served specially created dishes, designed to fit into the vessels, in order to see the goods in action. §
