With a passion for craftsmanship and pieces that stand the test of time, Will Dangar created the Robert Plumb range of outdoor furniture and architectural hardware products to compliment his residential and commercial garden designs.
Armed with a healthy dose of laconic Australian humour, Dangar takes delight in the naming of his products with fire pits called Brad and Angelina (of course), letterbox ranges named after the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly and his gang and stools bearing bolts and metal through their heads named Frankenstein.
Heavily influenced by materials sourced from nature, Robert Plumb successfully marries the natural with the man made resulting in a character and aesthetic that is both refined and honest.
Dangar’s country origins and his love for motorbike riding are perhaps what lies behind the success of Robert Plumb. Enjoying the freedom and space that riding gives him when out in the bush or on the track, allows Dangar the headspace to collect his thoughts. ‘No one cares what you do or where you’re from. It’s unpretentious and inspiring which is how I see the Robert Plumb product – real’.
With a new foray into smaller sized furniture inspired by his young children to be released this summer and a Bondi Beach holiday rental designed by Robert Plumb in the wings, it seems the motorbikes might have to sit idle until freedom to think is sought once again.
