The Bench Seats, Dining Table and Dining Chair were the first projects designed solely under the banner of ‘Vaughn Henry’. The idea was to start my professional relationship between the manufacturing and design world as an independent designer in Sydney, Australia.

The final product was a successful realisation of the bench seat and dining table. With the dining chair only reaching the basic prototyping phase. The design skills, relationships and many mistakes learned were invaluable in the growth of my own design career but most importantly the proof to myself that a collection on this scale could be realised.

The bench seats were designed with multiple functions in mind. From hallway seating to a platform for the end of your bed. The versatility of this contemporary piece was key.
