Meet the inspiring talents of the future
This May in Sydney, our panel of buyers, industry veterans and guest judges met with an eclectic mix of the Australia’s most promising emerging and established talents. After lengthy deliberation, Lane Crawford is proud to introduce our newest runners-up.
Sydney-based Henry Wilson’s work focuses on sculptural, utilitarian pieces cast in bronze and aluminium. The thoughtful designs are a reflection of Wilson’s extensive academic credentials; he studied visual arts combined with woodwork at Australian National University’s School of Art in Canberra and completed an MA in industrial design at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. He is also behind skincare brand Aesop’s Balmain and Crows Nest stores transformation in Sydney. Wilson’s work clearly combines form and function, creating pieces that stem from industrial processes yet still have a unique individual charm.
