Furnishing Utopia collaborated with retailer Design Within Reach on a lineup of designer-friendly household tools that draw direct inspiration from the American Shaker movement — "a religious sect, known for its simple furniture and architecture, made in the late 19th century," as Dezeen describes. From an all-black broom with red detailing by US designer Christopher Specce to Sophie Lou Jacobsen's ribbed glass bottles, the household tools were exhibited during the NYCxDesign festival.
Furnishing Utopia 3.0: Hands to Work was created to elevate the tedious task of daily chores through good and aesthetically pleasing construction. With its household tool collection for 2018, the creative collective supports the re-emergence of its inspiration as a popular design route.
