It feels to us that Australian furniture design is in an exciting time. We are creating a style of design that is all our own and not the result of influence from other parts of the world. Our Ned seat design is an object with a story that is quintessential of Australian colonial culture.
The Ned seat for us captures the essence in the making of the Ned Kelly armour – the timber Ned is made using bush craftsmanship. We have expanded on this by making a plastic and concrete versions from the timber mould of Camphor and Hoop Pine.
