The first rule of American Design Club — you don’t talk about American Design Club — is easy to follow.
You’ll be too busy shopping.
The new virtual co-op (a spin-off of the cult-followed, Brooklyn-based network known for nurturing made-in-the-USA design talent) is a marketplace for all things unusual and inspiring.
American artisans (a.k.a. members) you’ve never heard of (Kiel Mead’s reclaimed driftwood wall hooks and bottle openers, Chen Chen & Kai Williams’s resin accessories, AKMD’s cast-aluminum origami bowls) mingle with familiar faces (Heart Parts eating utensils, Reed Wilson’s cheeky doormats).
Die-hard dedication to imagination and play results in intriguing solo projects (Pat Kim’s color-block wooden rocket ships) and group endeavors (a not-so-secret collaboration with paper brand Knock Knock is slated for early next month).
Those in the know call it AmDC.
Welcome to the club.
Available at americandesignclubshop.com, $6-$250.
