A CURIOSITY FOR COMMON THINGS 

Common Foundry celebrates everyday objects for their simplicity, beauty, and fundamental utility.

 

Thoughtfully designed goods have the power to enrich our lives and elevate familiar tasks and actions.

EVERYDAY GOODS FOR EVERYONE

There is a story behind every object we carry at the shop. We recognize the brilliant minds who endeavour to design new objects, the power of everyday objects to shape culture and practices, and the impact they have had in our shared history.
