    neo-utility was founded in 2009 by Kip Kotzen. Recognizing that there were great products that were not making their way to the American market, neo-utility began to identify and forge relationships with both established and emerging design brands from around the world, focusing on products that are inherently useful and innovative.

    @theutilitycollective
    The Utility Collective was founded by designers Eric Pfeiffer and Steve Piccus in 2010. Their goal was to bring intelligent, well-made products to market and share how they are designed and made. Further, the firm wanted to build its products in the U.S. with sustainable materials at fair prices. They make a range of seating, storage items, office accessories, and decorative prints on plywood.

    @billstumpf
    A seasoned designer whose distinguished tenure for Herman Miller resulted in the award-winning Ergon, Equa, and dot-com-synonymous/simply ubiquitous Aeron chairs (with Don Chadwick), Stumpf (1936-2006) not only knew enough about offices to be authoritative in their dismissal, he knew a lot about everything. Having previously authored The Ice Palace That Melted Away: Restoring Civility and Other Lost Virtues to Everyday Life, Stumpf’s next manuscript concerned what he called “the arts of daily living”—a maddeningly broad topic that he approached with both wizardly acumen and childlike curiosity.
