Appearing at Semi Permanent Sydney 2017
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. He lectures part time at University NSW (COFA)
