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 Table was the first piece to be designed. With the starting point focused around the leg intersection, the quarter curve cylindrical joint quickly became the emphasis for the whole collection. The table is designed to seat 6 people comfortably with small apartment and loft style living kept in focus.
