About Charles Trevelyan

Having studied material engineering and three-dimensional design, Australian designer Charles Trevelyan makes organic creations that are innovative in both material and design. Trevelyan is the furniture and product designer behind Studio Trevelyan, the production house behind his namesake lines of tables, lighting, and design objects. His work fuses fine art and sculpture with furniture making, creating beautiful yet practical designs. “Form and function are the essence of design, and I don’t think an object can be classed as ‘design’ without at least some attention to both,” he says. “Design bridges these two extremes, and therefore must address both considerations to some degree.”
