Allan Witt (Witt Design)
Allan Witt with his wife Jackie began Witt Design in 1984. Their aim was to design and manufacture high-quality, functional furniture in a sustainable and environmentally-sound manner. In 2002 Witt Design developed a strategic alliance with Tasmanian Timber Engineering. This relationship assisted the Witts to manufacture their designs in a quality-assured environment and enabled them to plan designs based on greater knowledge of manufacturing capabilities.
“Increasingly, designers must make a significant and positive impact on our throw-away society. Ideally, we will reach the point where each of us has a lesser number of material things - but each more beautiful, more enduring, more functional and more valued.”
Allan Witt (1953-2021)
