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 Dining Chair was the most complex of the three pieces. With its continuous curves and joints the project was a definitely a headache. Even though this chair never made full scale production I believe it has benefited my spacial understanding immensely. I hope one day to finally realise this piece.
