2012 is an exciting year for everyone, with the Olympics and Jubilee its certainly a year of celebration! To mark 3 years in business, REthinkthings has branched free of its supporting sister company 5ml and is going it alone distributing an exciting range of British design-led products to trade independently with a typically British sense of determination.
Last month saw the launch of the long awaited Flo standing walking aid at the Naidex independent living show in Birmingham and next month REthinkthings LTD will continue its mission to bring new and innovative everyday products to market by showing at Earls Court London at the Pulse trade show for the 4th year running. REthinkthings will show seasoned favourites such as Kaspa the eco ghost light and Bauhaus Birdfeeder alongside four newly launched products for 2012 Olympian wall shelves, Palette plate, Spiral storage and Flo standing aid.
With the 5ml design collective having run its course, REthinkthings is REthinking itself with even more innovative new items by fresh new North West faces strengthening the brand and adding to the increasing number of unique and exclusive must haves in the online retail collection. Pulse will be the launchpad for the brand new Bygone clock range designed through collaboration between Liverpudlian Ilsa Parry and Stephen Rimmer, hand made by Stephen in Manchester from reclaimed Woodstock, it carries a beautiful tactile surface created by scorching, treating, polishing and oiling the wood. Also exclusive to the collection will be the origami lamp by Liverpool designer Matt Moore which recently featured on BBC2 programme "Britains next big thing" with Theo Paphitis and Habitat, this clever and funky design fits right in with the REthinkthings ethos of making more with less.
In just over a year REthinkthings have worked with over 25 retailers to distribute their design led homeware collections through 8 international trade shows and have proved to offer meaningful and quality creative products with a twist, you can see the creative designs on offer at the Pulse London trade show this 9th-12th June 2012, trade visitors can register here www.pulse-london.com, consumers can visit the webshop www.rethinkthings.co.uk to place an order and anyone can make an appointment to visit the studio by emailing email@example.com to discuss the products in person.
Notes to Editors:
REthinkthings LTD was founded in 2009 by Ilsa Parry and born of a long held belief that there are too many products on the market that lack emotion and personality and that an opportunity existed to develop and offer for sale alternative tools for living. Whether it be furniture, lighting, gifts, or purely functional items, REthinkthings' mission is to explore the boundaries of what can be materially possible to achieve a particular purpose and actively seek out opportunities to develop and bring to market the most imaginative products that demonstrate ambition and meaningful creativity in design.
Ilsa Parry is a Liverpool based product designer, creativity consultant, licensor, producer and promoter of innovative and Iconic products. Through her commission and consultancy work she is involved in a wide range of projects to both corporate organisations and independent designers, clients include McDonalds, National Museums, United Utilities, Liverpool Biennial, Jamie Oliver, Can Cook, Broxap, Bo Concept, Lego, Sony and Unilever. Ilsa has been designing professionally since 2003.
