Damien Wright is an award winning Melbourne craftsman working in wood. His practice involves a unique blend of Australian timbers, traditional joinery techniques, organic finishes and contemporary design.
Damien seeks to explore the beauty and bounty of the Australian landscape through furniture and sculpture. He specialises in the use of Ancient Redgum, a rare 15,000 year old petrified material.
The use and abuse of Australian timbers informs his artistic and political discussion of environment, belonging, design and material culture.
Damien is represented internationally in public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Australia.
As a designer/maker, Damien works on a commission-only basis, either directly with his valued clients or through architects and interior designers.
Damien's timeless pieces include tables, chairs, desks, bookcases, sideboards, low tables, beds, lighting, kitchen fit outs and sculptural pieces.
Since 2010 Damien has worked with Bonhula Yunupingu on their collaborative design and making project 'Bala Ga Lili' (Two Ways Learning)Contact
