Gray Matters

When Josh Jakus created the handles for his felt wine totes and bags he was left with loads of leftover felt rounds - the perfect size and shape for coasters. Each set of six is linked by a single seam of heavy orange thread. When cut apart each coaster maintains a strip of the orange thread. Made in the San Francisco Bay Area from factory excess industrial wool. Sold as a set of 6.

Josh Jakus

Josh Jakus is a Berkeley, California-based designer dedicated to making experiential connections between form and function. When a person uses one of his products, they naturally encounter the way it was conceived and developed. Achieving such connections requires a strict material sensibility--using materials in their simplest form so intrinsic qualities show through, and a rigorous design efficiency that strives to get the most impact out of the fewest moves.

Josh founded his design practice in 2005 as a way of continuing his lifelong interest in the nature of structure, space and materials. Though his design practice is driven more by intellectual curiosity than pragmatism, Josh is still happiest making things that are meant to be used. An architect by training with an Masters of Architecture from UC Berkeley, Josh uses his understanding of the built environment and how it is inhabited to inform his designs, and he hopes his products will help foster a more intuitive understanding of all objects in the people who use them.

          Comments about FELT COASTERS - SET OF 6:

          I'm afraid I was extremely disappointed with the felt coasters, which I bought because they wouldn't stick to any vessels placed on them. But the condensation on the glasses leaked right through to my beautiful table. After putting the coasters in the dryer, I masked off the tops of them with painters' tape and am in the process of treating them repeatedly with spray paint.

            Do What Coasters Are Supposed to Do

                Doesn't it seem odd that the majority of coasters out there are made of a non-porous surface? This means that the condensation drips down the glass, onto the coaster and then...onto the surface you're trying to protect. I have been hunting for fabric coasters (that don't have roosters or chickens on them) for quite a while and was thrilled when I saw these. They do the job, blend with my "transitional" decor and were not expensive.
