So I ran into Henry Wilson the other day here in Sydney, at some random party, and it reminded me that I still had yet to edit this video. In any case, if you're not too familiar with Henry or his design, I'm sure you will be soon enough. He's a great prospect and well on his way. Best of all, I seriously believe his approach embodies the best elements of what makes Australian design so interesting at the moment — Wilson's take on design is about re-thinking, re-interpreting, and in many cases, re-purposing things. Most of his pieces at the moment are one-offs (some of which I'd snag quickly if I were rich enough), but more importantly, Wilson's on the radar where it counts most. Big things to come...

We caught up a while back in Sydney as he had recently setup shop with Trent Jansen, doing this pop-up venture in The Rocks district of Sydney (historic/tourist-trap area of the city). The interesting thing about all this is that the 'pop-up' was intended to be very temporary, seasonal thing. Turns out that it's now grown to be a much larger operation, including an ambitious idea to generate workshops and a whole bag of other relevant events. The trentandhenry team, (Henry, basically) will soon be moving to the warf near by. The pier # is yet to be disclosed, and I'm happy to hear the news. He's good guy, Henry. Good luck! — d
