We are all more creative than we think.

The Creative Common Good and Crate & Barrel kindled a relationship in 2010, beginning what would become the first of many projects in 2012. We are happy to finally be able to publicly announce that with the launch of The Malvern, a long lasting relationship has been born.

The Malvern

A modern play on the classic cheval mirror, the Malvern was the first of many products with the storied residential furniture brand Crate & Barrel. We took the approach of fusing elements that spoke to the need for people to surround themselves with objects that show an aspect of the hand, while not divorcing it from a modern aesthetic.

Or as Crate & Barrel tells us:

Modern swivel mirror tilts an updated view of the classic dressing room staple in Daniel Stromborg’s clean design of mixed materials. Chinese ash outlines a long rectangle in warm grey and supporting frame linked with soft black metal base.

The Graham Desk Chair

Designed for Crate & Barrel in late 2012, was the answer to a directional shift in the Crate & Barrel portfolio. Intended to phase in and, in time, replace their existing (and best selling) office seating option, the Graham comes in at a price point that matches many people’s budget. An important design criteria for us was to offer something that most of the chairs offered by Crate & Barrel didn’t: seating comfort. With a waterfall front edge and a contouring profile, the Graham is a major step forward for the Crate & Barrel branded seating options.

Again, those folk at Crate & Barrel pen:

Full-featured desk chair scores modern style points with streamlined profile and great greys. Seatback flows to seat bottom in contour curves with a sculptural flair that also adds ideal back support. Handsome, channel-seamed felt upholstery compares grey tones with understated gunmetal arms and tapered base. A workplace or home office classic.
