Martin Davis designs and makes
one-off commission pieces of contemporary handmade furniture
for private and business clients. He believes that in making
successful contemporary furniture one must address craft and
design with an equal level of respect and skill. His furniture
is handmade and built to last for generations, displaying
traditional joinery techniques in contemporary ways. It is
intended to evoke a response in the viewer, to tell a story.
The primary materials used are Australian hardwoods. Timber
is always hand selected and a great deal of time is spent
ensuring the qualities of the specific pieces of wood are
incorporated into the design of the piece. Martin Davis' furniture
appears in collections in Australia, Japan and the USA.
