Thomas Wold Computer Station at the Good Hotel

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!
