Dr Donna Odegaard AM My love and appreciation of Manapan Furniture and the talented designers stems from a lifetime interest in art, design and fine furniture and spending time with one of Australia’s most renown designers, Khai Liew. This is what drew me to be one of the most devoted fans of Manapan’s beautiful bespoke pieces. Interestingly, I had always envisaged that someday an Aboriginal designer would be creating master craftmanship furniture of international acclaim and now we have Manapan Furniture. Every piece I’ve seen and desired has a unique design, appearance and functionality that you know has come from deep spiritual origins since time immemorial, and that will be treasured and increase in value over time. I am honoured to be associated with the community of leaders, creators and designers who are Manapan Furniture artisans, the makers of bespoke furniture.
