Brodie Neill is a leader in a growing movement of designers who use their work as both a form of education and activism to raise awareness on environmental issues and encourage sustainable practices. Join Neill and NGV Curator, Simone LeAmon in a conversation about Neill’s ReCoil table, 2021, which comprises three kilometres of veneer fabricated from ancient trees excavated from the waters of Lake Pieman in Tasmania, meticulously coiled and laminated by hand, creating a striking spiral tabletop.
