AN OBJECT COMPANY

1.“All The Way Through” Cheap Souvenir Scarf
2.Hotel Logo Keychain

Do you know how beautiful it is to make products that are made simply out of interest to learn what these products are made from? Benjamin Edgar Gott who you might remember from earlier in his creation of Th-oughts has a project known as "An Object Company" where Ben pretty much gets to experiment with materials that then result in beautifully designed tangible goods. From cut & sew garments, to incense bowls made out of polished aluminum, to marble hangers. Ben recently released the souvenir scarf which reminds me of a cold evening watching a soccer match with a side of hot cocoa & a keychain with a metaphor of a the hotel experience truly twisting and distorting reality for the duration of your stay.

ELON MUSK

1.TED Talk w/ Elon Musk

I'll be honest, I got into Elon Musk not long ago. I have become really interested in purchasing a Tesla (hopefully sometime in the next 4 years) that I finally decided to give in and look into the brilliance of Elon. I knew Elon was an extraordinary individual simply by knowing his resume but listening to this man speak about ideas is very inspiring. I believe in people and a people like Elon justify my beliefs so much more than what I could explain. I know it's a lengthy interview but after watching it once, you'll come back to it ... I have! At least once a week since I first watched it.

IRIS DAVID EDITH ANGELA

1. David Owen
2. IDEA Merch

Today, publications are one of the only things I constantly purchase. Self help books, magazines, & coffee table books are something I can’t have enough of. IDEA BOOKS was introduced to me via the app Depop. As I looked through their collection I was very excited to have had come across such vast archive of publications. Instantly, I knew IDEA BOOKS was something that would have my attention. Recently, co-founder David Owen of IDEA sat down with the Neighbour from Canada to talk about how it all came about.

  • PRINT IS NOT DEAD
  • "That’s tricky to answer as originally all we ever intended it to do was to pay the bills and afford us a living."
  • "Suddenly we needed a name and IDEA was conceived (actually by our eldest daughter Iris - it is an acronym for Iris David Edith Angela, our family)"

1. JJJJOUND

Justin R. Saunders from Montreal, Canada has and will continue to have my undivided attention when it comes to updates, products, etc. There is actually a huge amount of irony typing this out and speaking on him as he built his reputation out of just images and no text. Established in 2006, JJJJOUND.COM has become a sanctuary for design enthusiast. Displaying thoughtfully curated image that scream taste! Aside from his curated selection of images, the site host a shoppe full of tangible goods from beanies, coffee mugs (pencil holders), & even a mini hoop set for when 3pm strikes at the office.

LEISURE STUDIOS

1. Leisure Studios

Denver as it is today, seems to be constantly growing and changing. For the better part of the last three years I had the privilege of being supporter and contributor to a large collective of Denver based artist and creatives. Lined along the warehouses, boutiques, and restaurants of the Santa Fe Art District, Leisure Studios was one of the only places that ever held my attention. I'm biased as many of my friends played music from the venue, had gallery showings, and threw events and parties. However, when it comes to good taste and good people Leisure Studios was exactly the kind of place that would be overlooked (thankfully?) by Westword and the Post and valued as a sanctuary for the people that went there over some the "kooky-er" places in Denver. It's sad to see it close at the start of the New Year but like the warehouses in RINO, or the "original Streadbrook" it's played a big role in connecting me to the city I was raised in and in creating a real culture in Denver the right way.

TH-OUGHTS.COM

1. th-oughts.com

The description above says it all. The idea that you could ask the people you deem as experts a question and actually have them reply to it is very intriguing. I am one of those people that Benjamin Edgar Gott has spoke about in those interviews in regards to why he started this platform. I was cold emailing people questions, asking them to let me pick their brain on an idea or an issue, with little to no success. In all reality no success. Sure, reaching out is scary. What if they do read it and you look like a fool via email? What if they think you're just outright annoying for bothering them with questions? At the root if it, you're simply just trying to learn. You want to be able to move forward in the project you're working on. I sure don't mind paying $10 for asking a question that can result in very valuable information. Th-oughts has a directory of experts raging from fashion, photography, design, business, video, interior design, etc.

@BYSEANBROWN

1. Sean Brown
2. Needs & Wants Studios

Consistency, simplicity & taste come to mind when thinking about Sean Brown, creator of Toronto's Needs & Wants Studios. There is people doing incredible things all over the world, but as of late, I've paid close attention to what is coming out of Toronto. I discovered Sean Brown in 2015 through Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette. I saw a picture of Sean and Josh together in NY and I've always been the person to look at the company that the people I admire keep around. Sean's taste immediately resonated with me and I started to follow him and his brand. Today, Sean's work can be seen through his most recent collaboration with Bonlook eyewear, behind the sense of a Daniel Caeser project, & of course through Needs & Wants.
