Bridie Picot, Matt Smith, Sacrificial Chair, thing industries,

Working and living in the big city lends itself to an extremely busy lifestyle that doesn’t always allow time for more trivial chores like actually hanging your clothes in the closet. But that doesn’t mean we want to prematurely dirty our beloved threads by throwing them on the floor. Designers Bridie Picot and Matt Smith of Thing Industries have the perfect solution with their Sacrificial Chair. It wasn’t designed as a traditional chair (sorry folks you can’t sit here), but instead to replace “that chair” that is “constantly covered in crap.”

Brick Blanket, Thing Industries
  • We all know New Yorkers love exposed brick, but now we can actually wrap ourselves in it. Architizer shows off the Brick Blanket by Thing Industries.
  • You can visit 20 museums around the city for free tomorrow thanks to Smithsonian Museum Day Live. The Morgan Library & Museum, Jewish Museum, and Ukrainian Museum are just a few of the participating institutions.
  • Well this makes life easier…new app RadPad lets users pay rent with a debit or credit card. Head over to Laughing Squid for all the details.
  • Take a virtual tour of NYC’s 22 remaining armories with Untapped Cities.
  • Featured on Dezeen, a new jewelry collection is comprised of mini drafting tools, like protractors and scale rulers, all set onto brushed-silver rings. Next time duty calls for you to design a teeny tiny building, you’ll be fully prepared.
