Densan Obst

Christmas for Densan has mostly been about its namesake. Evening services and celebrating over beautiful meals with family. 

  

 

 

 

 

      

Karl Grassl
Design Manager
 

Karl is a Cabinet Maker with a Bachelor of Interior Design degree from Coburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany.
Karl did his internship in exhibition design on Shanghai. Karl started work for Chas Clarkson as a casual in early 2013
and is now our Senior Designer.


For Christmas, he loves to bake cookies…the favourite collection of cookies his Mum used to bake when he was younger. 
Karl confesses to being a last minute Christmas present shopper and never makes it to buy all of his presents on time. Loves the life in

Surry Hills, especially with extended late Aussie breakfast on the weekends and on rainy Sundays he usually bakes a cake for
work colleagues as a  treat for Monday!

         



 

 

 

Adam Walker 
Supply Chain Director


Adam has been with the company for 10 years and has tremendous knowledge of the Chas Clarkson product range and the
organisation required to collate and dispatch our projects.

 
Christmas thought: It’s all about eating too much then sleeping it off! Passionate about all illumination and new exciting techno stuff.
Ads is a lover of architecture and you could say he is a bit keen on the All Blacks. His favourite knock off beer is an India Pale Ale and
favourite artist is Eddie Vedder.

       


 


 
 
 
Gerard Ryan
Production Director
  

Gerard came on board with twenty years of event and brand experential experience- from design to production,delivering custom built solutions for many high end clients and agencies. 
Down time for Gerard can reign from reading, walking, looking after his two sons and when it is warm, scuba diving. Coming from the Northern hemispher, Gerard is still not settled into the warm Christmas holiday down under...but hanging with family and friends on the day with great seafood and
good wine eases the pain!
