Revolution Design House is one of my favorite Portland Makers. Their work is clean, modern and functional. All things that make me weak in the knees. They first caught my eye with their Boxcar Set succulent planters. They are just so simple and functionally beautiful which is proven over and over again with how customizable and adaptable they are to design. I especially love the collaboration done with artists for this year’s Design Week Portland. I always think something is designed really well when it can live in more than one way and in more than one type of environment.
Fortunately for us the Boxcar is only the beginning for RDH. They offer a variety of creations all with the same attention to design detail and functionality. It’s this mashup that makes them especially interesting to me as a creator. Proving true to this are their latest two candle designs. They’re thoughtfully created to morph and literally re-design themselves as they burn. It’s this type of design magic that really excites me. When something that we all know and find familiar gets a simple yet genius makeover, forever changing it and posing the question, why hasn’t anyone ever done that before? I mean really, how are we supposed to look at “normal” candles ever again?
But seriously, Revolution Design House is one worth watching. I’m excited to see what they have coming down the pipline. They are Portland, Oregon based and, by no surprise, their brand philosophy is on point as well, “Love What You Own”. Well, it comes across loud and clear and what’s not to love about that.
Check out the founders, Dylan and Joe, below and click through to the post for some of my favorite Boxcar designs as well as the Madison and Campfire candles. Just in time for the holidays, RDH has a bevy of perfect gifts, should anyone on your list be so lucky.
