Sydney, Australia-based designer Charles Wilson was raised on a wheat and cattle farm in Central West New South Wales. Having spent much of his early childhood close to nature, he creates designs that express essential function and honor natural materials. The forms that intrigue him are often rustic in origin.
Wilson studied industrial design at the University of Technology. After graduating in 1991, he formed a cooperative workshop with fellow graduates and developed a collection of experimental furniture and objects. One of his early designs, the Swivel Chair, became part of the permanent collection at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum in 1996.
He has designed a wide range of furniture for both commercial and residential application, which have enjoyed great success in Australian and international markets. He was recently described by the Australian Financial Review as arguably the most talented designer in Australia.
“A good dining table should be able to segue from functional worktop to elegant entertaining surface”. -Charles Wilson
