Vivienne Wong is a Melbourne-based furniture maker who established her workshop at the beginning of 2020. Using a combination of modern and traditional woodworking skills each piece is carefully handcrafted in Melbourne, with a strong focus on creating pieces of furniture that strike the fine balance between elegant design and functionality.
Previously a soloist dancer with The Australian Ballet for 14 years, Vivienne has no formal education in design but having instead trained and worked with a handful of independent furniture makers over the last four years, exploring and self-teaching along the way.
Vivienne has worked with and learned from independent makers:
Liam Thomas – Medium Rare Resto/ We East The Sun
Stephen Ziguras – Eco Wood Design
Bryan Cush – Sawdust Bureau
