Linda Fredheim is a designer/maker who is motivated by Tasmania, its places, forests and people. Linda’s furniture and objects are linked to Tasmania through respect for story, sense of place and materials.
Consistently inspired by the landscape and the history of Tasmania, she uses text, images and maps to tell the story of an event or person within the object. Her commitment to using Tasmanian Special Timbers strengthens the narrative of the object.
The respect for the timbers and their sustainable use is reflected in Linda’s goal to design and make precious pieces, built to last; future heirlooms.
Linda’s minimise waste philosophy means “off-cuts” from one piece then become a small objects job.
