Good Thing Releases Food-Safe Vessels Designed by Car Mechanic Turned Product Designer Shinya Yoshida

This morning, Good Thing announced a new product in their lineup—a trio of food-safe vessels designed by Japanese product designer, Shinya Yoshida. As former car mechanic, Yoshida naturally took inspiration from the flowing curves and shapes found in the auto industry when designing the G3 Vessels. The result is a curvaceous set of containers that can be used in the office, bathroom and even kitchen due to their food-safe material.

In addition to designing in-house products, Good Thing is known for adopting and nurturing other designers’ ideas, taking them through the production process and making them available for purchase on their site under the original designers’ name. The unique business model is meant to highlight the manufacturing process—creating elevated everyday objects by focusing on materials, production and working with a hand-selected group of talented designers. Before getting picked up by Good Thing, Yoshida actually exhibited almost identical vessels at SaloneSatellite in 2017 (we mainly can’t get over how cute they are as planters too):

Today also marks the beginning of NYC Restaurant Week, and for the occasion, Good Thing has partnered with Mission Chinese Food and Lalito to take the G3 Vessels for a spin. Starting today, enjoy a dish at either restaurant specifically designed to be served in the G3 Vessels. Bon appetit!
