Established in 2017, Studio Thomas Lentini specialises in made-to-order solid timber dining and boardroom tables.
Thomas' approach to furniture design is unique. Focus is placed on creating a friendship with each client in order to understand their style and requirements, and time is dedicated to site and workshop visits. Pertinent design solutions are then presented, followed by prototypes and the realisation of an idea. This philosophy ensures that each commission undertaken by Thomas is not only the best piece he has ever made, but also accompanied by a wonderful narrative.
Thomas completed a Diploma in Furniture Design & Technology in 2011, followed by the Associate Degree of Furniture Design in 2012 at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Following tertiary education, Thomas spent four years at Lowe Furniture, one of Australia's most highly regarded and skilled workshops, supplying exclusively to Hub Furniture. It was there where Thomas was entrusted with overseeing production of 7m oak boardroom tables and 3.6m walnut dining tables. The time spent there greatly contributed to Thomas' skill set and eye for flawless detail, now evident in his considered approach to both design and fabrication.
