Jeff Martin is a contemporary furniture designer based in 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.
Not exclusively craft, nor art, nor design the practice is best understood as a hyper focused meditation on all of these, without defining itself by any of them.
“Displaying facility with every material he encounters, Jeff Martin continues to push the boundaries of design with his furniture, finishes, sculptures and collectible design objects with his merry band of collaborators.”
