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.
