Brodgar Straw Back Bench
Gareth Neal, Kevin Gauld
Exclusively designed for The New Craftsmen by Gareth Neal and made by Orkney furniture maker Kevin Gauld, this striking bench showcases the vernacular straw work of traditional Orkney chairs to stunning effect. It can be made with or without the traditional drawers that are fitted underneath the bench.
The Brodgar Bench is an extension of the iconic Brodgar Occasional Chair launched in 2012 and forms part of an exclusive range of straw-woven furniture rooted in the Orkney craft tradition. Designed and made as a collaboration between furniture maker-designer Gareth Neal and Orkney-based straw furniture maker, Kevin Gauld, it harmoniously combines the Windsor chair vernacular with the warm texture of woven straw.
