New Acoustic Tile Collection for FilzFelt

My collection of acoustic wall tiles for FilzFelt launched last week! The four shapes–Chevron, Dart, Picket and Plus– are inspired by patterning familiar in fashion but the designs shift the scale and adapt the idea for a new interpretation as a wall treatment. The sound-softening, modular tiles nest together to create dynamic and compelling patterning on vertical wall surfaces. The application of the wall tiles on the entire wall or just a specific area customizes the pattern even further. The tiles may be installed wall-to-wall or as floating installations. Made from 100% Wool Design Felt mounted to a lightweight and thin…

Outside the Box

I am excited to share that I am the Boston curator and correspondent for ‘Outside the Box’ 2018, which opens today in Toronto during the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and then travels to WantedDesign in New York in May. ‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America. Shipped across the country in Bankers boxes, this annual traveling exhibition presents a dozen distinct national and international showcases each year. Working with local correspondents, each box houses a collection of thoughtfully designed objects, reflecting the particular resources and makers of that area. This seventh edition of ‘Outside the Box’…

Living Room Project

This summer I was invited by my dear friend Alberta (of ASKLabs and FaceTopo) to hear artist Lee Mingwei speak to a small group at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. He reviewed several of his past projects, some of which moved me to tears, and invited the members of the group to be ‘hosts’ at future sessions of The Living Room Project, bringing in personal objects or collections in order to spark conversation and social interaction amongst visitors of the musuem. As a minimalist and someone who appreciates beautifully designed objects that exist primarily to serve a function, ahem furniture, I…

Stripes Floor Mat Collection for FilzFelt

My Stripes Floor Mat Collection for FilzFelt just launched. The limited edition collection combines my favorite natural material with my love of all things striped and sustainable. Stripes Floor Mats are made from reclaimed post-industrial remnant felt that is cut and bound together with a zigzag stitch in durable grey nylon thread. Each of the three sizes (large 6×9, medium 4×6, and a 2×8 runner) is available in two colorways that feature neutral greys with pops of color here and there. The collection is available for purchase exclusively on, while inventory lasts.              …

Interior Design Ad

I was thrilled to see the advertising campaign for The Kelly Harris Smith Collection for FilzFelt in a recent issue of Interior Design magazine. The Arrow hanging panel featured is perhaps my favorite of the seven new patterns, although all of the designs are intended to provide varying areas of opacity and transparency through strategic placement of the patterning.
