Ben Percy:

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

Fur­ni­ture de­signer/maker based in Syd­ney. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing with hon­ours at the Univer­sity of New­cas­tle in De­sign & Tech­nol­ogy and Teach­ing, he re­ceived a schol­ar­ship from the Aus­tralian Dec­o­ra­tive and Fine Arts So­ci­ety to study at the pres­ti­gious Sturt School for Wood. Ben then went on to start his own com­pany ‘Ben Percy De­signs’ at a young age of 25, and his works have been on ex­hi­bi­tion in var­i­ous gal­leries and de­sign com­pe­ti­tions. He was also a fi­nal­ist in the 2013 Aus­tralian Timber De­sign Awards for The Pod and Flex Chair and did a short stint as artist in res­i­dence at Sturt. His pas­sion for de­sign is ev­i­dent. He is driven by the grat­i­fi­ca­tion he gets from com­mu­ni­cat­ing his own ideas through fur­ni­ture. Ben be­lieves great de­sign is func­tional, beau­ti­ful and in­di­vid­ual, and strives to cre­ate pieces that are not just art, but are com­fort­able, us­able forms to be en­joyed.
