Damien Wright is an award-winning furniture designer, sculptor and craftsman. He works almost exclusively with recovered Australian timbers, in particular, indigenous hardwood species that are not traditionally used to make furniture. Wright sources his timber directly from farmers and millers in western Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. He is acclaimed for his unique 'whole tree' approach to furniture design and construction. Wright employs rare joinery techniques such as blind-mitred dovetails and thick veneering.
Wright’s public commissions include the Federal Court of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Melbourne Immigration Museum, Federation Square Management offices, the Koori County Court of Victoria and the Archdiocese of Broken Bay. Wright’s private commissions are represented in family homes and private art collections. The National Gallery of Australia has acquired his iconic piece, Brief. Wright Studios is located in Northcote, Victoria.
