Chicago based design studio Tjokeefe have recently kind of wowed us with their striking take on design - creating furniture and objects using simple geometry.
Describing their process as distilling an object "down to its essential parts" they still seem to end up with some very refined pieces full of character.
"Our goal is to use design efficiently because that is what makes a form most powerful." say the office of their approach.
Tjokeefe's process and the resulting forms are very much rooted in architecture. Whether two-dimensional or three-dimensional, they approach each design problem in the same way: using the strict parameters of graphics and furniture, producing a distinct design not driven solely by aesthetic, but logic.
From a very covetable punchy neon set of steel nesting tables, to the beautifully balanced 'Chair IV', we like what they're doing.
No excess, only essentials.
