Studio Henry Wilson's work combines a rational utility with an element of sculptural expression. There is a clear form and function in their products, but it’s important they also have feeling. They are interested in the awkward beauty that comes from something made by hand. Studio Henry Wilson likes to explore how imperfection can be introduced into an industrial process, to make something at scale that retains a sense of individual charm.
All castings are handmade in Sydney Australia.
Henry Wilson was born in Sydney Australia. Graduated honors in Visual Arts (woodwork) at Australian National University, Canberra (2002-2005 BVA (Hons.)) and received the HSP Huygens scholarship at The Design Academy Eindhoven for Postgraduate studies (2008-2010) MA (Des.)
In 2010 he set up a studio for Design in Sydney, notable for the readapting of several disused shipping containers on a vacant industrial site. Though multidisciplinary; the studio is currently focussing on locally produced furniture and lighting. Many items are available as self-build components or fully resolved ‘in-house’ pieces. The collection continues to grow organically; committed to honestly resolved concepts with a focus on longevity.
Whether it be revisiting existing objects or producing new work, Henry is dedicated to experimenting on the process of design and production.
