Tasmania-based furniture designer Duncan Meerding loves the outback wilderness, which comes across in his work – his most popular pieces are simple logs whose natural cracks emit soft, warm light. Meerding is also legally blind, so the use of light in his pieces helps him communicate how he sees the world
Hewn from massive timbers of oak, every piece celebrates nature in its rustic simplicity. Rough-hewn beams are carefully hand-selected, planed and sanded. Wood features distinctive nicks, exposed knots and imperfections that speak to the wood's provenance.
