The Story

Charles Wilson is an Industrial designer based in Sydney, Australia. Upon graduating from the University of Technology in 1990 he co-founded the group Argo with fellow graduates developing experimental furniture and decorative objects. Wilson formed a relationship with The Sydney-based manufacturer, Woodmark early on when they developed his CW1 Swivel Chair, his first successful production design. He has since won a number of design awards such as The Australian Design Award for the MENU Candelabra, The Bombay Sapphire design discovery Award for “Spool”, and Launchpad Design of the Year.

Public commissions include early developments of the multifunction poles for Sydney City Council and furniture for the State Drawing Room, N.S.W Government House. Recent commissions include the design of a blackwood tallboy for the Broached Commissions and a swivel chair for Herman Miller. The Broached tallboy was exhibited at Design Days, Dubai in 2012 and was cited by Wallpaper magazine as “one of the most sophisticated pieces in the fair”. Also in 2013 Wilson’s Serif stools were exhibited at the Temporary Museum of New Design, at the Salon de Mobile, and were shown at 100% Design, London.

About the Blog

The LOCAL DESIGN blog is a creative visual diary with content created and contributed by leading local and offshore creatives and designers.

We want the creative community to hide their inhibitions, let their hair down and showcase whatever their eclectic heart’s desire. From the projects they are working on, the places they are visiting, their childhood memories, what music they are listening too, whatever makes them tick, it is a complete open online creative platform. Go on we dare you to pick up a camera and tell us your stories….

Along with this open-minded approach to the blog we will also be reporting on global and local design weeks, events, exhibitions, shows etc. with raw and real visuals alongside interesting insider perspectives.

We are very excited to see what will happen on these pages……
