Cohda's vision is simple, to achieve "Anarchy by Design". This involves upsetting, disturbing and unsettling normal design trends and poking you in the eye (not literally) with entirely unique designs.
Described as a ‘punk rock design company’, they break from mass production, developing their own unique design solutions. They regularly launch additions to their own product range at international design shows and major events, whilst also working on numerous consultancy projects.
They recently partnered with Joint Merit, based in South East Asia, providing them with a diverse worldwide technology and manufacturing resource.
Cohda is also committed to the environment, where they promoted the development and launch of David de Rothschild's Plastiki mission. Done in partnership with HP, Cohda supplied furniture for their launch exhibit at the National Geographic Store on Regent Street. The exhibition showcased everyday waste as a valuable resource, using the design, materials and build of the Plastiki as inspiration, teaching visitors about the impact of plastic on the environment through interactive stations.
Cohda’s latest interactive project was featured at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts in Gateshead in 2012, showcasing their Binary Furniture Process. As well as encouraging innovative thinking about the environment, Cohda also generates innovative thinking in design. Their Binary Process was developed by Cohda to raise awareness of 3D printing and allow the public to engage with this revolutionary technology.
Cohda has been featured in The Observer, Elle Girl, Grazia Casa, The Independent, The Evening Standard, MADE and Grand Designs.
