I feel as though around every corner there is something new and ingenious coming out of Thomas Wold’s studio. This past week we learned that he designed two pieces for the Good Hotel in San Francisco.

One piece is a computer station for the lobby constructed of a number of found items…

The other is a design that will be featured in his “Solid Wold” column in the holiday issue of ReadyMade magazine. We won’t spill the beans on what the piece is or what it is made of…but do keep your eyes out for this issue, it is worth it!

If you are not familiar with the Good Hotel, it is a new Joie de Vivre boutique hotel boasting to be the first of its kind “with a conscience.” The hotel believes in doing good by way of their philanthropic approach and eco-friendly designs (with a quirky twist!). The décor is made from reclaimed or recycled construction materials, “Be Good” is written on the walls of the rooms, they’ve got glow in the dark messages, and their vending machine in the lobby is stocked with wallets made from recycled FedEx envelopes. Not to mention Thomas Wold pieces are featured there….hot dog!

    I love the colors! It looks like an updated version of something out of a 60’s interior design book.

    ARG, I have seen it in red several times, I think one image from domino was all over the blogs. I’ll see if I can figure it out!

    Thomas does it again! He’s so talented, and really the nicest guy. I’m so happy to see our peeps grow more and more. Beautiful piece. I’ll definitely have to pop by the hotel to check it out in person.

    Btw, Joie de Vivre is doing a great job renovating hotels. A friend of mine stayed in the Hotel Tomo, formerly Best Western, in Japantown, and the redo was amazing, clean, Scandinavian meets Japanese pop. They’ve got Fat Boy chairs in all the rooms!
