Matter of stuff presents: Lara Bohinc and Brodie Neill in conversation
Lara Bohinc MBE studied Industrial Design at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, followed by Metalwork and Jewellery at Royal College of Art London (MA). After graduation, she won British Fashion Council’s New Generation Award and launched her own studio. A passionate believer in the universality of good design, she made the most of the opportunities to bridge the divide between jewellery, objects and furniture. Her first furniture piece was the Solaris Kinetic Table, made in collaboration with stone experts Lapicida for Wallpaper “Handmade” exhibition in 2014. In 2016 she set up Bohinc Studio for the exploration of furniture and object design. Bohinc exhibited at Fuori Salone 2017 and with Fumi Gallery at PAD London, Nomad 2018 (Monte Carlo and St Moritz) and The Salon New York.
Brodie Neill Since establishing his studio in London’s East End, Brodie has worked with an impressive roster of clients including Riva 1920, Swarovski and Kundalini, he has collaborated with international brands including Microsoft, Mercedes-Benz and Alexander McQueen, and his limited edition works are included in museums, galleries and private collections around the globe. He founded Made In Ratio in 2013, a self-designed and self-produced furniture brand. In 2016, Brodie Neill represented Australia at the inaugural London Design Biennale at Somerset House with a critically acclaimed installation Plastic Effects, where he launched his now iconic Gyro table. In 2017, he presented a multimedia installation Drop In The Ocean, an Official London Design Festival Project. A longstanding champion of using ocean plastic waste to create new materials, Brodie has spoken about his self-created Ocean Terrazzo material at the European Union Parliament and the United Nations.
