Dessein Furniture

Justin Hutchinson

‘I liked the fact that Dessein embraces a strong ethical and environmental stance and seeks to find new untapped resources and stories that define its range and brand.’

From industrial designer to lecturer and urban innovator, Justin Hutchinson is a firm believer in the positive value of design. His work as Design Director of Urban Commons, a product design studio, sees him developing sustainable urban solutions to high density living.

He uses technological and social innovation to create designs that foster longevity and promote a balance between man-made and natural environments. For Justin this is the beauty of Australian design which he sees to be like a youthful spirit, growing ever more assured of its place in the world.

A quick look around some of Australia’s most famous landmarks will reveal Justin’s work and expertise in outdoor spaces. Dessein offers him the chance to meet and collaborate with talented makers who are similarly committed to preserving their craft and working towards a singular vision.
