Ideal Interiors: In Conversation With Designer Charles Wilson - A Sydney Design Festival 2019 event - Explore world-renowned design at Penrith Regional Gallery.

Penrith Regional Gallery is getting on board with Sydney Design Festival, hosting an exciting panel discussion featuring award-winning contemporary Australian designer Charles Wilson in conversation with team members from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, including Jacqui Strecker (co-curator of current exhibition, The Ideal Home) and Keinton Butler, in a free event on Sunday 3 March from 2 - 3pm.

Responding to domestic objects currently displayed in The Ideal Home, Charles will provide insight into some of the design processes and preoccupation, while reflecting on his own design practice.

Charles Wilson is a furniture and product designer based in Sydney. His furniture design incorporates ergonomics as a sculptural expression, merging elements of classical handmade work with late 20th and early 21st century minimalist design.

In 1995 his career was established with the maker brand Woodmark when they developed his CW1 Swivel Chair, his first successful production design. Since then, he has gone on to devise pieces for MENU, Herman Miller, King Living, and the state government of New South Wales. He has exhibited widely in international design fairs, and is the winner of numerous including The Australian Design Award, the Good Design Award and the Bombay Sapphire Design Award.

In Conversation with Charles Wilson on 3 March is perfect for design-lovers, providing audience members with an intimate, exploratory and educational look at range of design objects on display in The Ideal Home and in Charles’ collection of works. There will also be ample opportunities for audience members to pose questions to both the designer and curator.
