Having first established themselves in Rotterdam in 2002, Toko have been permanently working out of Sydney since 2006, developing a portfolio of creative work for national and international clients. Their approach to design is informed by the rich heritage found in a Dutch-European culture of design and branding; exemplified by Formations: New Practices in Australian Architecture. The publication, that features first-rate design and dazzling visuals, was produced as part of the visual identity for the Australian exhibition at the 13th Venice International Biennale – the world’s most important architectural event.
Toko worked in collaboration with Anthony Burke and Gerard Reinmuth to produce Formations as a concept, logo and visual language to “create a true gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art) whereby the sum of all parts form one cohesive and considered solution.”
