Duncan Meerding

Duncan Meerding

Duncan Meerding is a furniture and lighting designer based in Hobart, Tasmania. Working predominately in timber, he creates pieces for everyday living to remind us of natural beauty. Much of his work features curving lines and surfaces, inspired by organic forms found in nature.

Many of my designs reflect his interest in light and its dispersion, represented by simplistic forms and different lighting designs. Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of his work reflect the alternative sensory world within which he designs.

Combining traditional wood joinery techniques with modern technologies, Duncan aims to create pieces which are functional, as well as hold a simplistic aesthetic beauty. Creating furniture and lighting which stands the test of time is his aim, both in construction, but also in design.

Not wanting to ironically destroy the environment from where Duncan gets his inspiration from, he aims to use sustainably sourced timber for his designs. His work should not merely be seen as something that looks nice, it should remind us of our intrinsic connection with nature and the effect that we have upon it.
