Gareth Neal

Gareth Neal’s furniture design practice was established in 2002 and is currently located in the creative heart of North East London

Neal specialises in the production of unique pieces, which are exclusively designed for individual clients and companies. His practice seeks a reconsideration of furniture design and our perceptions of the contemporary, by questioning history & processes, in relation to people and place.

The work is positioned at an intersecting point between, design and craft, evading any simple categorisation into a specific discipline. This innovative approach provides a critical framework for his ideas as the designs develop into new and diverse territory. His work has received critical acclaim and has featured in numerous publications and exhibitions, both in the UK and internationally.



Gareth Neal will be featuring in Session 3 - Tools
