The inspiration for Max Hunt’s furniture and lighting is drawn from the local to the international. He looks to South Australia and the natural and instinctual design coming out of the many small design studios. With an eye also on the trends and materials coming from overseas. During his industrial design studies at the University of South Australia, he became obsessed by the human scale and fine detail. This has continued into current work, where traditional utilitarian styles are reimagined into contemporary pieces worthy of a place in any home. In establishing the Brompton-based studio Hunt Furniture, his ambition is to provide authentic design manufactured in South Australia, to help support and grow South Australian design and manufacture industry. The goal is to make design simple, elegant, accessible and most of all affordable.
