Rupert Williamson

Despite having a natural ability in the craft of furniture making, Rupert Williamson began his career using any other material except timber, rejecting wood because of its association with the brown colour of old furniture. Yet the inherent quality of wood to be manipulated appealed to him. Now he likes to use contrasting timbers such as maple and walnut which retain their colours and contrast strongly, emphasising form and structure. Spending less and less time at the bench, Rupert enjoys the challenge of designing furniture which reflects not only the client’s interest and the brief, but combines, in a more abstract form, the geometry of man­made objects with the organic asymmetry of nature.
