Brodie Neill is a dynamic designer capturing the attention of the international design scene with his new and exciting use of form. This young Tasmanian’s rapid rise to success has resulted in an impressive collection of international collaborations and prestigious clientele.
Brodie's progressive approach has resulted in the much-celebrated design E-turn (2007) for Kundalini of Italy and the @ Chair; a design recently included in Time Magazine's most influential designs for 2008. These early successes attracted the commissions of ‘Jet’ by Swarovski for ICFF New York and ‘Remix’, ‘Pop’ (2008), and now ‘Reverb’ (2009) for The Apartment Gallery, London. Neill’s continuous creative endeavors led to the partnering with the late fashion maverick Alexander McQueen for ICFF New York in 2009.
Brodie merges his underlying interest in form, first explored at the University of Tasmania, with a progressive digital approach developed during a Masters degree at the Rhode Island School of Design. After a successful stint working for top brands in New York, Brodie established his current studio in London's East End, where he applies his seamless, fluid-like designs to a range of objects from production items to special editions pieces.
With an extensive record of international exhibitions, Brodie continues to attract top international brands and manufacturers with his unique fusion of technology and a progressive aesthetic.
"The University of Tasmania program taught me to challenge myself on a creative level, thus developing a diverse range of skills and experiences. This skill set is at the foundation of the work taken on today, evermore challenging and creative.
"For a Tasmanian, here was the perfect creative environment matched with a hands-on design approach, all on my door step.”
