Rediscovering the artistry in joinery

Franco Crea

Furniture, Metal, Office, Outdoor, Timber

Inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s less is more philosophy, furniture and space designer Franco Crea has a clean, uncomplicated aesthetic. He values symmetry and is committed to environmental, social and economic sustainability. He is also committed to local manufacture. Preferring to work in close collaboration with fabricators, Crea refines his ideas based on their opinions and expertise and prides himself on ensuring his work reflects the latest trends, construction methodology and technology.
Crea produces a collection of pieces suitable for both interior and exterior settings and undertakes bespoke commissions for residential and commercial clients. His Mesa collection was a finalist in the emerging designer competition Launch Pad in 2013, and he recently worked on the redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval, manufacturing 216 tables and 28 ottomans and stools for various spaces, including the corporate suites, Rick Davies Bar, and Graham Cornes Deck.
