The Utility Collective

Steve Piccus and Eric Pfeiffer established The Utility Collective with a simple idea: to bring intelligent, well-made products to market, and share how they are designed and made. Most importantly, let's do it in the U.S. with sustainable materials at fair prices!

We treasure the everyday items we use most often: a chair, a table, a pencil cup ... we love to know how they're made, and where they come from. We have relationships with these products and they live with us in our homes. We should know their story.

The Utility Collective offers a window into the making of each one of our products. We'll photograph, video, blog, and share as much of the process as we can. We'll also try to introduce you to the people, places, and inspirations behind the products we offer. Call us design nerds, but we believe this knowledge creates a deeper understanding and appreciation for a product. Working directly with U.S. craftsmen and factories enables us to offer the highest quality product at a better price.

Much like devotees of local farmers' markets who want to know where their carrots and broccoli are grown, we think it's time the public knows the story about a few of the non-edible objects in their daily lives.

It's time to design, make, and sell local.
