TOKEN is a New-York based furniture design studio established in 2007. The company is dedicated to an atelier style of development and production that provides commercial clients and collectors alike with well-crafted pieces that are richly artistic and warmly functional. All Token furniture is designed and manufactured in our Red Hook, Brooklyn studio with special attention to form and precision.
Trained as both a fine artist and industrial designer, Founder and Creative Director Will Kavesh pulls from a background in sculpture, painting and engineering to create engaging forms using new techniques. Will draws from the Crafts movement that came out of early Modernism and sees Token as an extension of this philosophy through contemporary furniture design. “When I design a new piece, my hope is that its function is similar to a work of art. That it delivers an emotional response within a space to the viewer.”
