Brook studio is a small studio and workshop situated a short walk from the River Hamble in Southampton, England. It was built using reclaimed materials, reflecting the studio's responsible, low-impact ethos and it's practice centres on bespoke furniture commissions, small-batch products and design - predominantly in wood, but often incorporating complimentary natural materials.
The studio was started by Tim Evershed, whose work is defined by considered design, durability, quiet detail and quality material. Inspired by English vernacular, Scandinavian Modernism and the American Shaker movement, Tim interprets historical objects and archetypal forms for contemporary living, using both traditional woodworking techniques and digital fabrication methods. Tim remains the studio's sole designer and maker.
Tim works with interior designers, architects and private clients. Projects range from bespoke furniture commissions and small batch production runs crafted 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 the furniture making process.
Tim is alumni of the Crafts Councils' respected Hot House programme and sells work through galleries and retailers nationwide and internationally. He has also held workshops at Kingston University and is an active participant on the Young Furniture Maker's committee.
