New York-based, Texas-bred designer Doug Johnston is utilizing his skills and passion for materials and functionality. Not afraid to step outside the box, Johnston investigates the relationship between the two, handcrafting humble and durable organic fixtures out of minimal materials. Johnston's production process relies heavily on an industrial sewing machine, in which he stitches cotton rope and nylon thread to create a variety of goods including these Two Stools.
