"TOKEN is a Brooklyn based studio that provides design, development and manufacturing solutions for artists, architects and curious individuals. Observation and a careful consideration of function, structural ingenuity, material dynamics and aesthetic coherence are all important characteristics of our practice."


"Being curious individuals ourselves, we began developing TOKENnyc in 2009. The result is a collection of historically reverent, handcrafted furniture and lighting products; a distilled representation of TOKEN which aims to provide elements for purposeful, considered living.

Drawing inspiration from bridges, rigging equipment and the classic director's chair, we've created a chair that is equally suitable for work or dining. The TOKENnyc Catenary Dining Chair is about intended contrasts: rigidity and flexibility, thick and thin lines, soft and hard edges and heavy and weightless proportion. The combination of these dissimilar characteristics aims at continuity, and the tension between the parts carries a peaceful pose."
