Limited edition Gomo chaise longue hand crafted by Alasdair Easton
It’s an absolutely unique chaise longue. Contemporary, slender and amazingly comfortable. It also represents the very best of British woodworking craftsmanship and high-end Portuguese design.
The Gomo, of which only 36 will be made, costs £6,000 and is crafted from ash and American black walnut. It was recently exhibited at the Scottish Furniture Makers’ Association summer exhibition.
It’s the result of a collaboration between Uchnops™, an international design brand, and Alasdair Easton of Organic Geometry, both based in East Lothian, near Edinburgh.
Alasdair is a graduate of the renowned Chippendale International School of Furniture, and his company is still based at the school – which offers its students workshop space to develop their businesses after graduation.
Alasdair is a Scottish Furniture Makers’ Association award winner, whose work has been exhibited across the UK, including the London Design Festival, Clerkenwell Design Week, and SFMA exhibitions in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Uchnops™ is a new design brand, initially specialising in house-wares and furniture, but which intends to grow into a complete high-end product design brand with an international clientele.
“The Gomo is beautifully crafted and is being made in very limited numbers. It will find a ready market among discerning collectors of modern furniture worldwide,” said Alasdair.
The Gomo chaise longue is available from www.uchnops.co.uk.
Gomo in Portuguese means “segment” – as in a segment of orange, and reflects the shape of the chaise longue.
