Studio Furniture 2018

Studio Furniture 2018 is a landmark exhibition of work by today’s leading designer makers at the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery celebrating its 35th year, in partnership with the Australian Wood Review celebrating its 100th issue. The exhibition brief was to create well considered and crafted pieces made with saleability within a gallery context in mind. The design and finish presented will communicate a studio furniture attitude; that is, an emphasis on individually designed and made work. Each piece will show a high level of thought and detailing so as to distinguish it from mass-produced manufacturing. 

Studio Furniture 2018 is dedicated to Matthew Harding (1964-2018) as an artist, father and friend.

The exhibition continues until January 31st 2019.
