|Wilson Keyring||$14.00||Add to Cart|
After meeting up with General Manufacturing Concern founders Hunter Craighill and Dylan Fareed earlier this year, we were inspired by their mission to inject everyday objects with some design poetry. A few conversations later, we decided to collaborate on an exclusive Ghostly edition of their awesome Wilson Keyring.
The Wilson Keyring is the kind of design we love to admire. A simple solution to an age-old problem, the keyring utilizes a bit of tension from bent brass to make storing and using your keys a cinch. It measures roughly 2″ by 1.125″ and can accommodate more keys than you'll likely ever need. Our Ghostly edition features a nickel plated finish and has an enamel stripe in our signature purple.
About the design of the Wilson, the designers note: "The design materialized out of a side project in wireforming; the inspiration came from a system our friend Chuck was using to store brass lock rings in his workshop. We honed in on the right design and finish within a few rounds of prototyping, and worked with a jewelry finisher in Yonkers, New York to complete the enameling."

Hunter Craighill and Dylan Fareed founded GENMFGCO in 2013 to make some things a little simpler and a bit better. Working in their studio or closely with manufacturing partners, GENMFGCO prototypes and iterates on designs until they’ve met a strict criteria of simplicity, utility, handsomness, and longevity.
