Frukt are a multinational brand experience agency based in Chancery Lane, London. My team and I designed, manufactured and installed:
- A BREAKOUT SPACE, complete with geometric birch ply inlay flooring, timber lattice wall and roof, and concertina sliding doors handmade from steel and perspex
- 18 TESSELLATING HEXAGONAL TABLES made from birch ply, which were installed in several meeting rooms, and could be rearranged in a modular fashion as required
- A MOVEABLE RECORD STORAGE UNIT which doubled as a DJ booth, and could be rolled around the office on a Friday evening
- 2 LARGE ROOM DIVIDERS made from steel with plywood boxes to hold plants and books. The room dividers could be repositioned on castors and the plywood boxes could be rearranged within the steel framework for displays and presentations
CRATE BREWERY, 2016
Crate is a well-known bar/restaurant in Hackney Wick, London. I designed and built 9 tables and 24 benches for their 2016 revamp.
For this project, my team and I collected 75 reclaimed pallets from the local area around our workshop - Walthamstow, North London. It took a very labour intensive fortnight to dismantle, de-nail, rip and thickness the pallet slats, before we could begin construction.
The frames were constructed from welded mild steel, finished with a clear, matt lacquer to retain its industrial look and feel.
For the tops, we cut the pallet slats into isosceles triangles, trapeziums and diamonds to create three different tessellating geometric designs. As pallets come from all over the world, they are constructed from a remarkable variety of wood species. The spectrum of tones, textures and hues create a compelling, almost three-dimensional tabletop design, each one entirely unique.
