The Heron Chair by Charles Wilson for Woodmark of Australia
Designer Charles Wilson has received rave reviews for his innovative works and “The Heron Chair” he did for Woodmark of Australia is no exception. The forward thinking behind the Heron Chair stem from his experiences as an industrial designer and Wilson even made the 1;1 scale patterns that form the chair and seat moulds by hand. These were meticulously tested and modified until the optimum level of comfort was achieved. The inspiration for this sleek modern chair came according to Wilson “while photographing curvaceous Victorian lounge chairs and wondered how I could re-interpret these organic shapes in a modern way”. Woodmark collaborates with freelance furniture designers to develope one of the most cutting edge modern furniture collections.
