Geocommunetrics offers place-based and space-making accent pieces
fit for any house, office, or workspace - anywhere you want to feel at home.
Here you can also find reports and summaries from our Institute projects.
These are meant to be resources for communities who are looking to do
something a little different to gather the People.
PLACE-BASED PATTERNS by TZCK
are quintessentially Geocommunetrics.
Embellished with designs geometrically derived from zip codes, they represent the abstract the character of a geographic place.
Whether the design represents a place you call home, or you simply like the dynamic design, they have the power to ground and enliven wherever you put it with intention.
Currently placed in Evanston, IL, many Gecommunetrics pieces use local zip codes patterns, but custom pieces can be made for any US zip code.
are partners to TZCK's work and offer engaging, simple pieces fit for your space, a host, or a friend.
While the textiles are not designed in-house, these crafted goods favor the natural, the geometric, the mindful. Most are made from minimal, cotton fabrics, so they add nothing to a space but comfort.
