By day, Brian Johnson designs high-performance composite products for the medical and military industries. By night, his passion for creating modern, functional home goods takes over. He enjoys working with simple, sustainable materials in striking ways and applying novel approaches to everyday objects.
In the spring of 2009, Brian's Boston-based design shop theUncommonGreen was born with the goal of bringing unique new products to consumers in a responsible way. With eco-friendly manufacturing in mind, theUncommonGreen makes every effort to source materials and services locally through other small businesses in the United States while selecting recyclable and repurposed materials whenever possible.
Another part of the company's mission is to give back. By supporting worthy causes like humanitarian aid organizations, community-building organizations, and animal shelters, theUncommonGreen seeks to contribute to the betterment of society through extraordinary design.
