This work is based on the principles of environmentally conscious design. Made from Bamboo, assembled without the use of glues or adhesives and utilising natural timber finishes for optimum levels of interior air quality, it symbolises the convergence of craft and modern manufacturing.

He has since received numerous prestigious national and international awards for his work, ranging from furniture to product design engineering, including the DIA Vic/Tas Graduate of the Year Award, and the Global James Dyson Award.
Edward is driven to understanding design from the intimate to the global scale. Fascinated by the emotional connections one can build with their favorite coffee cup, yet conscious of the disastrous environmental, social and cultural consequences of over-consumption, he aims to develop truly appropriate and responsible solutions.
