Shelfie

We have taken a selfie of our newest design! This beautiful bit of oak has been made into our first Shelfie which we will be displaying at the Best of Britannia exhibition in a couple of weeks.



The simple design works with slot in hooks of various shapes and sizes which mean you can entirely personalise your Shelfie to your needs. The one shown here has been made to show off Dan's bike and hang all the other bits and pieces that go along with it!


Made from solid oak with a smooth sanded and oiled finish, we're working on a few different types of hooks and accessories that will make this modular shelf suitable for all sorts of spaces. Everything from pan racks, utensil hooks and bottle opener for the kitchen to coat hooks, scarf loops and shoe racks for the hallway.


Come and see us at the show in London 2.3.4 October to find out more.

London Design Festival

Its that time of year again when we set out to go and find out what is hot in the design world at the moment. The London Design Festival is an annual event, held to celebrate and promote London as the design capital of the world, and as the gateway to the international creative community - and 2014's Festival did not dissapoint!

With around 250 designers taking part, it is often hard to decide where to start!

We saw SCP on Curtain rd - Three shows from Japan, America and Britain that
celebrate things made as they should be. Welcoming the Ishinomaki Laboratory, Mashiko ceramics, the Shotoku Glass Company and other special objects from Japan. Brooklyn-based designers Fort Standard represent America, while SCP launch A/W14 designs.




The V&A had a brilliant show of interesting design installations - Including the amazing mirror ceiling. Two revolving reflective structures were suspended in the centre of the gallery, provide an ever-changing view.


Around the building was an interesting array of exhibits called 'The wish list'. We were truley amazed by the techniques in making a huge, circular table. The table consisted of approximately 150 layers of solid wood, shaped, sanded and laminated together to produce an entirely solid pedestal table.



100% design also did'nt let us down! - 100% Design is the largest design trade event of its kind in the UK, covering interiors, the workplace, kitchens and bathrooms, emerging talents as well as eco, design and build.

After meeting with some of the exhibitors at the show. We are excited to begin installing new technologies such as wireless chargers into our furniture.



Designjunction - Located in a facinating building and boasting a crosssection of content from product
launches and installations to pop-up shops, bespoke eateries and live flash factories. Another show of inspiring new designers all in an urban setting.




Just a few of our highlights to share with you. We hope you enjoyed your visit to London Design Festival too!!

Synagogue ark

We will be delivering this beautifully handmade ark to a Synagogue in London later today. When in its new home in Buckhurst, the ark will present and protect three holy scrolls. As part of the brief, it had to be movable so we designed a clever system which conceals the castor's.
