Description Gareth Neal’s two ebonized-oak George Low Cabinets, pay homage to historic design through new innovations in wood carving and sculpting. These unique pieces build upon the designer’s longstanding interest in referencing Georgian furniture styles as evinced, for example, in his George III, acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum’s permanent collection in 2013. Across his repertoire, Neal combines the technical modes of 3D computer drawing and CNC processes with the intricacy of professional craftsmanship. The exterior structure of George Low Cabinets have been meticulously chipped away to reveal an interior design that is reminiscent of eighteenth-century design.

Gareth Neal has a unique approach to design, through material inventiveness, curiosity, and reinterpretation of historic forms. Represented in public and private collections worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England, Neal has both literally and figuratively shaped a new era in design and craftsmanship. Inspired by historic forms across the history of furniture and design, Neal combines CNC technology and 3D programming alongside traditional techniques in wood carving and chiseling to create unique contemporary interpretations of historic subject matter.

Neal’s 5-Drawer George was exhibited in the critically acclaimed exhibition “Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft, and Design” at Museum of Arts and Design, New York, NY (March 19, 2013-September 15, 2013), Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Florida (October 12, 2013 – January 20, 2014), and the Bellevue Arts Museum, Washington (March 7, 2014 – June 30, 2014). His George III Chest resides in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. His most monumental work to date, Big George, was exhibited at the venerable Winter Antiques Show in 2016.

Gareth Neal (b. 1974) graduated in 1996 from the Buckinghamshire College, High Wycombe, England, with a BA in furniture design and craftsmanship. In 2002 he set up his furniture design practice in London’s East End, specializing in one-of-a-kind pieces for private and commercial clients. Neal has been a lecturer at many universities including his alma mater, Buckinghamshire College and at Brighton University where he is a Senior Design lecturer and researcher.
