We've got yet another awesome new company to talk about that's recently joined us at 2Modern, and that's the brilliant designs coming out of Brooklyn-based TOKEN. Founded by designersWill Kavesh and Emrys Berkower, the furniture they create is certainly lovely and attractive, but they do more than just build furniture that looks nice. Though, we'd be lying if we said these designs are darn fine looking.
To Will and Emrys, it's about making furniture that is functional, comfortable, isn't ironic for irony's sake, is honest and true and modern because of the engineering and design, not because it looks "cool." They take a very academic approach to how they tackle design problems and are clearly two very thoughtful, intelligent guys. It's not all seriousness, though; they add in plenty of details that are fun and whimsical, meaning though this is smartly designed furniture, it can be enjoyed by everyone. Listen or read on to hear more about how they come up with designs, how they work together and what it is about their furniture designs that makes them so awesome:
