Duncan Meerding (b. 1986) is a Furniture and Lighting Designer/Maker based in Hobart, Tasmania. Much of his work is inspired by forms found in nature and concentration on over all form rather than intense detailing, with a particular interest in how light disperses through and around forms. Meerding was listed as a Top Ten Finalist in the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award in 2011 for his Cracked Log Lamp. This lamp represents most of the central parts of his design identity, while also high-lighting what can be made from a perceived waste material.
