About the Designer

Grant Featherston

Grant Featherston

Born in Geelong, Victoria, Australian designer Grant Featherston had no formal design training, instead teaching himself to create lighting and glass panels. After serving in World War II he developed his signature furniture products, his relaxation range, followed by his famous plywood shell contour chairs in 1951. In 1956 Featherston opened his showroom Featherston Contract Interiors and the following year he became a consultant to Aristoc Industries, a role that he continued for 13 years.

In 1965 Featherston formed a professional partnership with his wife and fellow designer Mary, collaborating together on many projects drawing inspiration from both the natural world and organic form. Commissioned by Robin Boyd to create a design for the Australian Pavilion at Expo ’67 in Montreal, Featherston produced the ‘Talking Chair’ which, when sat upon, delivered a tape-recorded message on Australian topics in French and English.

Featherston received several Good Design Awards for his work and was a foundation member of the Society of Designers for Industry.
