Thout (provoking) design

Posted on Sun, 29 Jul 2007 by KiM

Thout has been featured on a few blogs but I seem to have missed them until I started reading my new copy of Canadian House and Home where they are featured. Being a Canadian firm, I had to give them a shout out, because of that fact and after checking out their website, I was so impressed at the creativity of this group.

“Based in Toronto, Upper Canada, Thout is a loose group of designers formed by Patrick Turner. Thout is named after the Turner family cabin, built in the 1900’s without running water or electricity. Thout is a place where needs are met with simplicity, clarity and honesty. Our products are created in the same way.”

A useful wall tile for storing all sorts of odds and ends, like kitchen utensils. A useful tile for storing everything from spices to fruit to condiments.
A useful tile for storing your utensils in a fun and space saving way. This lamp is formed by a single cloth-sheathed cord wrapped around a skeleton.
This lamp is formed by a single cloth-sheathed cord threaded through a punctured frame. A useful tile for hanging up all those coats that clutter your front door.
One of the coolest tables I’ve ever seen. “Cedar stumps are made lighter when pierced with holes that look as though they could have been made by a giant worm. Holes can store beer, if required.” This is quoted from the site, making it my favourite item here.

Love the blue beer storage stumps. My husband wants one of those. That red table has a place in my home any day!

The stumps and table get an A+! Love ’em. Also like the pendant lights! 🙂

This was one of my favorite booths at ICFF. While there were a lot of booths full of natural materials in neutral colors, and then a lot of man-made materials in bold colors, this was one that combined the two styles cleverly, beautifully, and with wit. YUM!
