felt coasters - set of 6by Josh Jakus
- the story
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.

- the maker
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.
