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.
