TOKEN: Meet the Makers
Token is a New York-based design studio founded on engaging forms, luxury materials and innovative manufacturing. Through experimentation with traditional forms, they create precisely fabricated American furniture at their Brooklyn, NY workshop.
Led by creative partners Will Kavesh and Nicole Cornell, Token's collection of casework, tables, and seating is created using American hardwoods, intricate marquetry veneer patterns, and studio-machined hardware.
Will Kavesh earned an MFA in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University and spent many years making custom furniture for other designers before starting Token a decade ago. His passion is the painstaking craft of marquetry, which dates back to the 16th century and in which he is self-taught.
