Provenance and Background Info

A ONE-OFF cabinet lovingly HAND-CRAFTED in AUSTRALIA by celebrated AUSTRALIAN furniture designer and master-craftsman, Will Marx. This piece was the very first piece of Will’s to be awarded 1st prize in a furniture-making competition. Boasting meticulous construction, this piece shows an amazing eye for detail. Constructed of SOLID timber-there’s no crappy “Weetbix” chipboard veneer here- put this next to a Parker sideboard and there’s NO comparison as far as quality goes. Upon closer inspection you’ll notice the curved concave front- this is very hard to create and rarely seen. Additionally, there’s inlay-bordering on both the drawers and cupboards. To top it off the hand-shaped pieces used to store wine bottles can be easily removed from the interior to create an open space to suit any storage need. This piece is easily in the same league as the prized Fred Ward cabinets done for Myer Heritage back in the late 1950’s. Fred Ward’s items are highly-prized but Will Marx’s pieces are a couple of steps above those in both design and construction.

Will Marx is a true artist- he’s most at home when he’s creating. It’s the giving of joy through his designs that Will most loves about his “work”. I suspect this is why many of his pieces have this elusive magic. True “magic” is effortless- there’s no “striving” in Will’s work because he creates furniture for the sheer love of it.

Will Marx has won a Queensland Furniture Design Award three years in a row. Various Will Marx pieces have been on the exhibition circuit including the Queensland Museum and the Queensland Gallery. His work has been showcased in a Designer Spotlight interview in Tasmanian Timber as well Elle magazine, Casaviva magazine (Italy), El Aviso magazine (Mexico), Homes & Interiors magazine (Scotland), Slobodna Dalmacija newspaper (Croatia) and Gael magazine (France).

Will Marx is a Brisbane-based designer and Master Craftsman with over 25 years-experience in the furniture craftsman industry. He studied with local furniture master craftsman, Robert Dunlop before starting his own furniture-making business called Maxcraft in 2001. It has only been more recently that Will has devoted all his professional attention to spending days alone in his workshop with slabs of raw timber, his bare hands and the feeling of adventure and excitement that comes from creating bespoke pieces.

All of Will’s work is accompanied by a 10-year structural guarantee- this cabinet will last FOREVER if used with any sense. (If I can remember rightly it’s already about 20 years old.) With the revolving door from shop-to-home-to-landfill spinning faster than ever it’s inspiring to come across furniture that will be passed onto future generations. Schulim Krimper’s pieces are now raising up to $50 000 in auction- many of Will Marx’s pieces are destined to do the same thing. His pieces are not just the antiques of tomorrow but an inspiration to all who experience them.
