    Since establishing his studio in London’s East End, designer Brodie has worked with an impressive roster of clients including Swarovski and Kundalini, he has collaborated with international brands including Microsoft, Mercedes-Benz and Alexander McQueen, and his limited edition works are included in museums, galleries and private collections around the globe.  

     A longstanding champion of using ocean plastic waste to create new materials, Brodie presented a multimedia installation Drop in the Ocean, an Official London Design Festival Project 2017. Brodie’s latest design work, Capsule, again engaging with the issue of ocean plastic is currently on exhibit at Museo Nazionale della Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan. Brodie has spoken internationally about his self-created Ocean Terrazzo material, most notably at the European Union Parliament and the United Nations. 

    At this year’s Salone Del Mobile Brodie Neill is presenting new works from his self-produced furniture collection Made in Ratio, which continue his signature ethos of celebrating contemporary craftsmanship and innovation inspired by nature.   

    Returning to Brera Design District for the brand’s seventh Fuorisalone, the designer of the internationally acclaimed Cowrie and Alpha chairs, has unveiled an extended collection of his now-iconic Alpha chair.  The new additions include a high bar stool and a lower counter stool. The biomorphic form of the solid wood chair has been elongated with a footrest and a cross-brace while the lowered backrest and smaller seat accommodates a wider range of seating. The resulting profile is seamless and organic with all the sculptural attributes synonymous with the original Alpha chair.  

     Making its debut, the Theorem screen is the studio’s first foray into the new design typology of a room divider. A voluminous tambour screen, Theorem is a fluid yin-yang structure of woven linen intercepted with laminated Douglas Fir slats at close intervals. The alternating but complementary materials create a soft interplay of light and warmth, of privacy and visibility, and breathability and rigidity. An organic intervention in the space, Theorem creates a subtle silhouette while animating the room.  

    Completing the new releases is the Re-focus coffee table – an evolution of the low-level Focus table – the new pared-back version combines ebonised ash with marble. The circular design features an aperture in the centre allowing the blackened wood grain to act as a window to frame the solid marble below. The table is also available is a reversed combination of the two materials. 

    Also on exhibit at the studio-garage on Via Palermo 8 will be the renowned Cowrie chair – this time in Ash with grey leather seat pad moulded to the soft contours of the sculptural lounge chair – and the Stellarnova dining table featuring a round solid black Belgian marble top and biomorphic branch-like cast bronze legs with a black patina finish.
