Moa toes

IMG_5880.JPG

been working on a few new lamps recently in between different projects. And I call this one Moa toes. The Moa was a native bird of New Zealand and became extinct around about the 15th century I believe. It was similar to an emu but much bigger and also flightless.  

 

Meeting/Table tennis table

Early Last week we were contacted by Stuart Langley of the Disappearing dining club to do a table for a company called Broadwick Live. Stuart manages a company that runs pop up dinner and dance events and has been moonlighting as an interior designer. And he asked me to look at making a meeting table that is also a full size table tennis table out of very nice hardwoods. So here’s what got created….

The top is made of these reclaimed Iroko school laboratory work surfaces from the guys at Reclaimed Uk. They say the tops came out of a school in Crosby in the Liverpool area built in the late 60s.
The frame is made from new Ash, supplied and machined by PJ Johnson Timber ltd.
The following pics are a few more stages of the process involved in the making of this piece.

Harmonypark Pallet office

2013-02-15 23.46.41

December 2012 we started a conversation with a company called Harmonypark about creating a meeting space within their open plan space. A place where they could hold meeting and have a private phone call without disturbing the rest of the space.

Their Ideas were to also have the structure modular and sound insulated. So the materials I chose to use were Pallets for the main , with scaffold planks for the Skeleton, and Pallets for the main wall sections, roof and floor. Then we lined it with reclaimed plywood from building site fencing/hoardings.
