Henry Wilson, a Designer on the Up from Down Under

July 25, 2013

Henry Wilson may still be in his twenties, but the young designer is making a name for himself in the world of Australian design. The Sydney native, who studied woodworking and furniture design at the Australian National University in Canberra and went on to study at the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, has created a line of furniture with a modular system of sorts. Using metal A-joints that connect with standardized timber, Wilson has produced a line of deceptively simple tables and stools that can be purchased online. As he puts it, “The A-joint unites simple function with limitless form.” For more information, go to Henry Wilson.
