‘DENFAIR is Australia’s leading destination for contemporary design and art for professional designers, architects, interior stylists and design-lovers. Our curated design event, refined over three years and held annually in Melbourne and Sydney, has become the connection point where today hundreds of local and international brands come together in their passion for design to utilise DENFAIR as a platform for business growth and opportunity.’
To complement the 2018 launch of DENFAIR’s new and content-rich website, I was delighted to interview Adelaide-based fine furniture designer Nicholas Fuller and to write this piece steered by his story.
‘When other children were building pillow forts, Nicholas Fuller was more likely to be found hanging arounds lathes and milling machines in his father’s fitting workshop. The son – and grandson – of a machinist, the Adelaide-based designer grew up immersed in the art of ‘handmade’, surrounded by raw materials and daily witness to skills that saw these materials transformed with utmost care from one thing, into something else entirely. Working with and honouring the imperfections and stubborn quirks of wood is a Fuller family gene, as is impeccable craftsmanship and an eye for good design.’
