Anton Gerner, Anton Gerner, Vic (Studio Furniture 2018)

Anton Gerner has reputation for excellence based on 28 years of uncompromising attention to design and detail. Thriving on intricate details, unusual timbers and specialized joinery, Anton heads a small, dedicated team of highly skilled craftspeople who specialise in making one-off pieces of contemporary furniture. Anton often works with unusual timber veneers, often with complex quarter and book matching. The finest quality solid timber and unusual veneers are carefully selected and matched from a range of mainly Australian timbers. Fascinated by furniture design history, Anton Gerner's design aesthetic is contemporary, with inspiration drawn from American Shaker furniture and the Biedermeier and Art Deco periods. Clean lines and strong shapes are emphasised and fine details featured. Contrasting timbers and inlay details are a strong design feature. Uncompromising high quality construction and attention to detail is achieved using traditional hand tools, techniques of construction and finish. Traditional wood joints such as mortice and tenon joints, dovetails are used to ensure lasting quality of each design. See www.antongerner.com.au
