SKEEHAN studio specialises in commercial furniture and edition objects for the home. Directed by industrial designer Tom Skeehan, the studio finds inspiration in the complete resolution and restrained beauty of the Japanese culture, particularly the simplicity and efficiency of the origami fold. Recent work has been developed around notions of perception, connection, and the waning value of 'play' in the production of design for manufacture. Conscious awareness and refinement through research, drawing and prototyping are integral starting points which clarify, solve and suggest. Ultimately leading to production informed by purpose and consideration of the long term lived experience of SKEEHAN's objects and products.
