gareth neal is a london based furniture designer who combines traditional forms and craftsmanship with contemporary tools and design. neal currently teaches design and runs his own studio. most of neal’s designs use wood as their core material, sculpting it in a variety of ways. one such example is his CNC milled pieces which have a boxy outer form that is milled to reveal a baroque like interior. in these pieces, neal uses the preciseness of milling to create the forms with the form. other pieces have a more organic approach, using fluid forms as supports. likewise, neal has also designed an aluminium rocking chair and  a steel rod lamp.
