More by Brodie Neill -Young Designer of the Year
A while back I posted about the piece at the end of this post.
I stumbled upon a new piece by the same talented designer this morning . Though it is not an outdoor piece I find it stunning and wanted to share it! Remix chaise longue is carved from laminated plastic, plywood, chipboard and fibreboard - some of which are reclaimed - using CNC machinery.
Previously I wrote:
More and more outdoor furniture is art- like. Just a single piece elevates an outdoor space into an art installation. And top of this new league one will find designs by Tasmanian born Brodie Neill who has been nominated for the Young Designer of the Year Award by Homes & Gardens/V&A, to be announced in March 2008.
E-Turn is the design they are considering.
This young talent is also being featured in the following book which is set to be published on Nov 25th in the UK - he will feature alongside some of the world's main design talents - a synopsis of which is below.
