Chelsea Lemon is a Canberra based designer and maker who works with timber. Many of her pieces include foliage and plant themes, mixed with interactivity and the decorative woodworking technique 'parquetry'.
Chelsea’s work explores new ways of incorporating shapes into design, by creating dynamic geometric arrangements and forms that are influenced by nature and architecture.
In 2015 she graduated with Honours from the Australian National University in a Bachelor of Visual Arts, majoring in Furniture Design. Chelsea was the 2018 Design Canberra Artist in Residence, and has exhibited her furniture at Parliament House, Australia.
Chelsea's work questions archetypal furniture, and showcases a new and fresh approach to a traditional woodworking technique. Her practice incorporates art into craft and design, and offers a new perspective on furniture design within Australia.
