We are exhibiting in the Design Arcade at this year’s Grand Designs Live. We have a joint stand with Lara Aldridge Glass. The exhibition is at London’s ExCel and runs from the 3rd -11th of May. I will be on the stand this coming bank holiday weekend. Come along and visit me there.
Last week I delivered an extending table made in solid European Oak. Instead of using an off-the-shelf table mechanism, I built my own one out of wood. It caused a few sleepless nights and no small amount of head scratching but I am really pleased with results. I will be putting it on the web site in a few days. In the meantime, here is an image of the table opened up ready for the leaf to be put in.
We will be exhibiting at Interiors 2014 as part of a new area of the show called ‘Designer Makers’. Come and visit us on stand BP39 in hall 1.
‘ Designer Makers are a group of British craftsmen who design and make contemporary bespoke furniture to commission.
The membership consists of a large body of excellent designer-makers of furniture from all over the UK, including the top names in the field.
To some they’re regarded as a national treasure and it’s an absolute pleasure for us to welcome them to INTERIORS UK.
This is your opportunity to speak to the experts who can make your furniture design ideas reality! ‘
One of our Alice chairs is part of the new exhibition at the CAA. They have even used one of my images for the flyer.
model : making is an exhibition which looks at the increasing use of new technologies by both craftsmen and architectural model makers. Devised to celebrate the London Design Festival, CAA will collaborate with architects Allies and Morrison to present ‘digital’ sketches, early prototypes and finished work, offering the viewer a unique insight into the early stages of the development of an idea.
model : making will explore how the use of new technologies is influencing and changing the aesthetic demands of various creative disciplines.
