Duncan Meerding

Duncan Meerding Lighting + Furniture Duncan is a lighting and furniture Designer/Maker based in Tasmania. Much of Duncan’s work is inspired by the natural environment with a concentration on overall form, rather than intense detailing. The interest is on how light performs through and around these forms and materials. The light of the Log Lamps emanates from the periphery and reflects the alternative sensory world in which Duncan designs. Being legally blind himself with less than 5% vision.

 

The making process is especially interesting to Duncan, its importance to how we design is relevant to today’s designer. He tries to avoid quick moving trends in his work, but instead focuses on designing and making things to stand the test of time, both metaphorically and physically.
