Brook studio is a small studio-workshop situated 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 bespoke furniture commissions and design in wood and other natural material.
The studio was started by Tim Evershed, whose work can be described as considered, durable and functional. Tim finds inspiration in the reductive language of English vernacular furniture, Scandinavian Modernism and the American Shaker movement. He interprets objects and archetypes for modern living, using both traditional woodworking techniques and digital fabrication methods. Tim remains the studio's sole designer and maker.
Working with interior designers, architects and private clients, projects range from bespoke furniture handmade at his studio in Hampshire, to public art and commercial interiors.
Tim sources timber from local tree surgeons and sawmills across the South of England. Some of this timber, he air dries himself on-site, ensuring complete ownership 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.
