Brook studio is a studio-workshop located a short walk from the River Hamble in Southampton, England. It was built using reclaimed materials, reflecting the studio's responsible ethos and it's practice centres on the design and production of furniture for residential and commercial spaces.
The studio was started by Tim Evershed, who draws influence from the objects and archetypal forms of Scandinavian Modernism, English vernacular furniture and the Shaker movement. Drawing on these reductive approaches to design, Tim creates bespoke and made-to-order furniture that is long lasting both in construction and aesthetic appeal, with emphasis on considered detail, pleasing proportions and quality materials.
Working with primarily with private clients, interior designers and architects, projects range from one-off pieces, to public art and commercial interiors.
Tim sources sustainable timber from local tree surgeons and sawmills across the South of England, hand selecting each board himself and scrutinising against high standards. Some timber, he air dries himself on-site, ensuring complete control of his making process.
Tim is alumni of the Crafts Councils' Hot House programme and sells work through galleries and retailers nationwide and internationally. He has also held workshops at Kingston University and is a member of the Young Furniture Maker's committee.
