While I’ve been designing and making furniture for nearly 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.

More recently, I have become intrigued by the new mathematics of architecture and have embraced novel forms into my work. This can be seen in the S(l)ide Table, and the K bowl series, which both use the triangle as a defining motif.

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 to Melbourne in early 2013, I brought the business with me, and I now work from workshops in Brunswick and Thomastown.
