Birnam Wood Studio was founded by Brecht Gander in 2017. With a background in the highest level of craftsmanship and fine woodwork, his studio treats functionality as a ground plane for aesthetic play. Birnam’s research-driven practice is rooted in experiment and experience, mallet and chisel, fine craft and restless exploration.
Since launching in 2017 Brecht’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Sight Unseen, Apartment Therapy, the New York Times, Residence, Revista Exclama, Leibal, Design Milk, Interior Design Magazine, Husk and elsewhere.
Brecht was a 2018 Emerging Designer of the Year Honoree at NYCxDesign.
