A-Joint by Studio Henry Wilson.

 

The quest for individualism amongst mass produced items can often be a fruitless one. However, when we discovered the ‘A-Joint system’ by Sydney based studio Henry Wilson, we were kindly reminded that such a notion can be achieved.

From the Australian National University or Art in Sydney, Henry carried out his masters degree in the Eindhoven Design Academy. On his return to Sydney he opened his own studio, applying his experience and qualifications in woodwork and visual arts.

Central to Wilson’s projects are core elements of rational utility within domestic design. Combining form with function, his pragmatic collections also obtain distinct emotional connectivity. Wilson describes his curiosity for planned irregularity within the industrial production of day to day items.

 

 

“I am interested in the awkward beauty that comes from something made by hand. I like to explore how imperfection can be introduced into an industrial process, to make something at scale that retains a sense of individual charm.”

 

 

Most famously, the studio’s origination was signified via his patent pending ‘A-Joint’ system. In close relationship with a local Sydney foundry, his sand-casted A-joint has since been developed into a construction system for modular tables and seating. Seen in the images below, Wilson has integrated his flavour for attractive imperfection into his utilitarian junctures.

Further to his casted couplings, Wilson offers an array of domestic accessories, lighting, fixtures and furniture. These items are best viewed via his website and social channels which can accessed via the links and images below. Each image is a link to its place on the studios website.
