New furniture on display in the Octagon ArtSpace by Ben Percy. 27 July – 26 August, 2013.
Ben Percy is a exciting and passionate emerging designer maker. Soon after gradating with honours as a Design and Technology teacher he challenged himself to work outside his comfort zone of wood and focused on stainless fabrication. With a passion for learning and a desire to design and make quality contemporary furniture, Percy then studied at the prestigious Sturt School for Wood in Mittagong where he was awarded the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Societies Young Arts Scholarship. His designs are unique and creative, allowing him to construct bespoke pieces that are hand-crafted to the highest standard.
Ben Percy designs furniture that creates interest and contrast by using a divergent mix of materials including timber, plastics, aluminium and stainless steel.
