Angus Ross is best known as a designer and maker of exquisite, sculptural furniture with a sense of movement and flow. He has been innovating with wood for almost thirty years and continues to be curious about the possibilities of his local timber.
Angus has a background in industrial design with a BSc from Napier University, Edinburgh and designing for the British High Street brands. After becoming disillusioned with mass manufacture he retrained in cabinetmaking and set up his eponymous studio-workshop.
Since 2002 he has been based in Aberfeldy, Perthshire and he co-owns a local bluebell wood managed for sustainable timber and bio-diversity. The small section characterful timber led to steam-bending and he combines this with traditional cabinet-making and contemporary digital cutting.
He is has been mentor for the Crafts Council, board member for Craftscotland and he exhibits internationally. His furniture is in several museum collections including V&A Dundee and his clients include National Trust, Historic Environment Scotland and councils across the UK.
