Grant Featherston (1922–95), the most prominent and successful furniture designer working in postwar Australia, is noted for his moulded, upholstered plywood modernist chairs from the 1950s, which combined comfort and style and which resembled work by Charles Eames. Featherston’s importance as a designer is well known: he was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1988, and his work appeared in Mid-Century Modern: Australian Furniture Design, also at the NGV (ABR, August 2014).
