Designed and developed by Brodie Neill – a University of Tasmania and Rhode Island School of Design graduate – Brodie has established an international reputation for creating striking, sinuous and sculptural designs rooted in material research, technical rigour and craft know-how. Working alongside some of the finest craftspeople and championing time-honoured materials, the collection is imbued with a spirit of innovation and design excellence.

Launched in Milan in 2013 with a debut collection including the now-iconic Cowrie chair, Made in Ratio added the critically acclaimed Alpha in 2015, a stacking chair with a sculptural silhouette that embraces natural design and honest craftsmanship. Recognised for exuding originality and elegance, both designs were included in Taschen’s 1000 Chairs.

Brodie’s inherent sensibility for structural sustainability and respect for natural materials and craft come from growing up in Tasmania, an island famous for its wild landscape and the fine craftsmanship of indigenous timbers. Developing a passion early on for carefully honing natural materials into expressive forms, Brodie refined his aesthetic during a Masters at the Rhode Island School of Design, resulting in a signature style singled out by Time Magazine’s Design 100.

Made in Ratio designs have received critical acclaim through awards and publications, and have been exhibited in and acquired by museums, galleries and private collections around the globe.
