Sydney-based industrial designer Tom Fereday has forged a stellar reputation in Australia for crafting furniture, lighting and a variety of other products in his signature minimal aesthetic that remains true to their materials and process.

The Australian-born designer grew up in the UK and after graduating from London’s Wimbledon School of Art, returned to his native Australia to complete his studies in industrial design at Sydney’s University of Technology. Since setting up his own multi-disciplinary design studio in 2012; Fereday has won numerous awards, including 2015 Red Dot Design Award in Germany, and 2014 Space and Mooi Design Residency in the Netherlands. Fereday develops products based on the principle of honest design, taking into consideration the materials themselves and the manufacturing process; the result is intelligent and thoughtful design from the inside out, which connect people with redefined details, natural materials and tactile finishes.
