Sam Blomley (he/him) is a Melbourne-based furniture designer and craftsperson. His practice includes working with wood and metal in explorative, self-developmental ways that mimic folk-explorations of found materials. Much of his work functions as documentation and response to the natural and built environments that the objects will later reside in. He believes that sustainable design is a subset of sustainable living practices that center family and culture, and that only through living presently in our own stories and spaces will we achieve a wholly sustainable way of living.
Sam carries an appreciation of space and objects inherited from his family, an understanding of social living inherited through his chosen family, and a deep compassion for our near and far lives that comes from his widest family.
