Gunzel Solid Timber Range

Ross Didier

rD, a new furniture design brand by Ross Didier, exclusively represented by James Richardson. rD strives to create useful and democratic furniture design with an understated, utilitarian charm.

The Gunzel range includes chairs, tables and bar tables that express utilitarian charm. They remind you of vintage refectory tables as well as factory work benches, but they have a unique visual lightness that bas been carefully considered.

While material selection was simple, the design needed to be paired back, objects were carefully created with a sense of utilitarianism.

Didier points to the classic Melbourne tram as an example of such an approach where sculpted wooden interiors were smooth and considered, and leather holding straps were durable and honourable. Subtle design elements that are sculpted, rigorous and restrained – striving to appeal to mean of the senses. The Gunzel range was named after the Melbourne tram enthusiasts of the 1970’s, known as the Gunzels; who took daring steps to capture the perfect photographs of Melbourne trams.
