2×2 Organizer

Date

2020

Exhibition: Aluminum Group

Description

Aluminum Group was a design exhibition which took place at Toronto’s ESP gallery during design week. Co-organized with MSDS Studio, the show saw 15 Canadian designers come together to create a collection of machined aluminum objects. Including both practical prototypes and pieces of sculpture, the show covers diverse range of themes unified by a single medium.

Our contribution was the Thread lamp. An upward-facing light source bounces off a milled aluminum shade to emit a bright but indirect glow. Threads on the lamp body make it easy to adjust the shade height, changing the angle and intensity of the bounced light.

About

The Studio opened in 2013, creating products for Wolfond’s consumer brand, Good Thing. In 2018, Wolfond sold Good Thing, allowing him to dedicate himself exclusively the evolution of the Studio.

Rooted in the belief that the experience of hands-on making is the best approach to designing physical objects, the Studio’s process revolves around iterative physical research. A unique combination of material experiments, paper models and handmade prototypes are behind every object the studio designs. By combining this hands-on process with direct experience working with tradespeople and factories, the studio simultaneously determines what an object will be and how that object will be made. This vibration between problem and solution yields objects that are resolved, unique and inherently suited to scaled production.

Jamie Wolfond Studio has worked with clients in Canada, The United States and Europe. In 2017, Wolfond was awarded Forbes’ Top 30 Under 30 award for Art & Style.
