About Birnam Wood Studio

Birnam Wood Studio treats functionality as a ground plane for aesthetic play. Engaging materials in ways which cause them spark, become molten, desiccate, oxidize, exhale and twist is central to Birnam’s research-driven practice. Produced through experiment and experience, through mallet and chisel, drawing on fine craft and restless exploration, these works are the culmination of many collisions. Birnam Wood is the design studio of Brecht Gander.
