Elliott Bastianon, Elliott Bastianon (Studio Furniture 2018)

Elliot Bastianon is a furniture designer and maker based in Canberra, Australia. Graduating in 2012 from the Australian National University with a BA/BVA (Honours), he has a diverse material palette and attempts to extrapolate the most from everyday things around him; often combining materials in ways that he hopes will direct his practice down a path not often taken. His work is often characterised by hard edged geometry and a strong use of repetition, drawing inspiration from visual arts and architecture as well as traditional craft methods. For Bastianon, furniture isn’t just something utilitarian. It’s an apparatus of communication, a tool to deliver a message or encourage a different way of seeing the world.
