Furniture by Australian Designer Henry Wilson

Modular and handmade furniture seems to be work that I’m drawn to, I can’t pinpoint exactly why, but a few ideas came to mind the other day when I was thinking about the furniture that I personally own.

I’m sure you’ve seen this imagery of Enzo Mari before and his Sedia 1 chair but I couldn’t help but pull it up on my own terms and explain a bit about why I like it.
