Mark Gabbertas

Designer - Netherlands

Mark Gabbertas is a multiple award-winning designer who has pioneered many new forms and processes in furniture design. He was at the forefront of the renaissance in the British designer/maker movement in the 1990s before establishing the Gabbertas Studio in 2001. The design studio currently leads the way in experimenting with new technologies and has earned accolades for pushing the boundaries of outdoor furniture design.


“Our objective is to create designs that have character through their simplicity. As a studio we find ourselves being drawn repeatedly to designs that fulfil the rigorous demands made of furniture for outdoor use, while managing to retain a lightness of touch that makes them suitable for interior use too. I suspect we enjoy the challenge."
