Brett Lundy
2014 AWARD: Craft Ontario Volunteer Committee Scholarship

After studying Art History at the University of Toronto, Brett Lundy pursued a career in jewellery making before discovering the craft of furniture design and construction.  An intensive course with wood guru Michael Fortune reinforced Brett's passion for building studio furniture.  He founded Merganzer Furniture in Toronto where he designs and builds one of a kind custom pieces and limited run studio furniture in the city's west end. Brett describes his work as “furniture your grandchildren will use”.  His designs are constantly evolving to explore the boundaries of material and techniques to find the perfect balance of form and function.  Inspiration from nature can be seen in the countless carvings and organic curves that appear in these elegant and contemporary pieces.
