Jeff Martin is a contemporary furniture designer based out of Vancouver, Canada. His small studio serves as an exploratory research/design lab and manufacturing facility.
Best known for their design systems Shaker, Painted, Neolith, and Excavated. The studio at Jeff Martin Joinery analyzes the intrinsic nature of elemental materials, and responds to the material characteristics in obscure and invented methods. The Vancouver based studio has been in operation since 2012.
Not exclusively craft, nor art, nor design the practice is best understood as a hyper focused meditation on all of these, without defining itself in any of them.
Jeff and team have been awarded Design of the Year by the IDA, Designer of the Year by Western Living, and a residency at the Museum of Glass.
