Exhibition: Studio Furniture 2010

February 15, 2010

An extensive exhibition in Bungendore NSW, featuring 70 pieces of studio furniture from 66 wood workers.

In association with Australian Wood Review magazine and Craft Australia.

This exhibition is the result of an Australia-wide competition sponsored by the Wood Works Gallery. Over 138 entries were received and from those 70 pieces of furniture from 66 individual wood workers and furniture makers were selected to make up the most extensive exhibition ever held at Bungendore Wood Works Gallery.

Entries for the competition include stools, chairs, lounges, hall, bedside and coffee tables, cabinets, sideboards, mirrors, lamps, chests of drawers, bookshelves, boxes, desks and a dining suite. The brief for the competition was for a well-considered and crafted piece of furniture, made with saleability within a gallery setting in mind. The design and finish needs to communicate a “studio furniture” attitude: that is, an emphasis on individually designed and made work showing an appropriate use of hand work so as to distinguish it from mass-produced manufacture.
