Dojo is a set of table and chairs designed by Amandine Chhor and Aïssa Logerot.
This refined, elegant design focuses on its rigorous outline, characterised by a sharp contrast between the softness of the wood and the harsh texture of steel – the fluidness of the curves emphasises the joining of these materials.
After graduating from ENSCI-Les Ateliers, Amandine Chhor and Aïssa Logerot kick-started their careers working in architecture and design studios for five years, as well as for companies such as Hermès. Between 2009 and 2012, they collaborated on contemporary design projects, using sustainable artisanal techniques, in developing countries such as Cambodia, Morocco and Cameroon. The duo founded their own design studio in Paris in 2013, with the aim of creating objects that tell a story and achieve a perfect balance between function, form and production technique. Passionate about materials, arts and crafts, and industrial manufacturing processes, they design products and furniture that are functional yet simplistic.
"The objects we create reflect the interest we have in materials and manufacturing techniques, whether craft or industrial. As we are complementary in our work and share the same idea on design, we have worked on a range of tables for Petite Friture, initially thought for crafts, and today re-adapted to be produced in series."
