Fred Ganim is a furniture maker who lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. His practice is intuitive and process-driven; clean lines and carefully constructed joints emerge in a contemporary collision of traditional artisanal techniques and modern, forward-thinking ideas. Ganim’s work pushes at the perceived limitations of timber, his primary material; it is bent, folded and coaxed into unlikely, undulating curves.
Transposed from timber to stone, Ganim’s signature joint is thrust to the forefront of his creations. Marble flows fluidly through grooves, curves and cantilevers, exuding a tactility and sense of ceremony that resonates through a room.MASS, produced by Agglomerati, is his first collection of works in stone.
