Thomastown, VIC, 3074


While I’ve been designing and making furniture for more than two decades, my life as a woodworker began in earnest in 2010 when my partner and I were living in Denmark. I established Eco wood design in Copenhagen, specialising in custom-designed and built furniture.

Aesthetically, my designs are driven by my interest in creating objects that are both functional and elegant. I have been strongly influenced by the simplicity and clean lines of the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as the minimalism of mid 20th Century Danish furniture, and the balance and restraint of Japanese artistry.

It is important to me that the objects I make fit with sustainability principles. I use recycled Australian timber when I can, as well as sustainability sourced timbers or plywood. In making the pieces I design, I use a combination of traditional methods such as dovetails, as well as more modern techniques, like biscuit joinery.

Returning from Copenhagen in early 2013, I continued the business in Melbourne, and I now operate from my workshop in Thomastown as part of the Worco Co-operative.
