Stowed Away Interview

We recently had a chat with the folks at Stowed Away about how we got started and the things that inspire us. Click here to view the interview in full or follow their campaign to highlight creative businesses on Instagram

Grid Shelving

Grid shelving unit made from 20mm square section steel and plywood.This is a grid shelving system we developed for Accelerator London. The client wanted a half way house between a living wall and a display cabinet so we designed this grid shelving to allow the plants to grow through. With this we included simple plywood boxes for display purposes as well as the trays for plants. In addition we designed and fabricated modular plywood shelves for adaptability.

Conference Table and Reception Desk

Have you seen the TV show Catastrophe? It’s dead good. We’re in to it. So it was a real treat to be asked to design and make a conference table and reception desk for the new office of the production team behind it. 

We designed and made a 4m long conference table and reception desk using powder coated steel and reclaimed Canadian pine.

Plywood Shelving

Office shelving unit we made for Accelerator London. Measuring around 5 metres wide by 3 metres high. We made it in 8 sections at the workshop and assembled everything together on-site. Can’t wait to see it when those shelves are full.   

Service Counter

Here’s a few shots of a service counter we designed and made for the good people at P.Franco who were after a service station counter for their wine shop and bar on Lower Clapton Road.

This little beauty features a solid Oak counter top with service shelf and cutlery draw. 


If you’ve recently wandered down Kingsland Road in East London’s “trendy” Shoreditch you may have seen noticed the colossal light-box we recently made for the business incubator, Accelerator. Measuring a modest 4 metres in length, it’s the largest (and only) light-box we’ve ever made. 

The London Loom

If you’ve not yet come across Brooke and Francesca AKA The London Loom then they’re definitely worth looking up. Their studio, The London Loom has really taken off and we love what they’re doing. 

They’ve somehow managed the impossible and created something rather unique to London through their studio. In doing so they’ve created “a community for people who love textiles and making things with their hands as much as they do; a place where no matter what your ability or reason for wanting to create, there was a platform for you to enjoy beautiful materials and proper equipment that works well and is a pleasure to use.”

So when they asked us to design and manufacture their handheld looms and a series of freestanding thread racks we couldn’t say no.  Here’s a shot of the thread racks in action.

Noble Fine Liquor

If like us you’re sick and tired of turning up to the party, shuffling awkwardly into the kitchen and regretfully placing your corner shop contribution of Casillero del Diablo on the counter then fear not, help is here. The guys down at Noble Fine Liquor “don’t stock wine and beer just because we think it will sell. Everything from out best value drink to our highest end Burgundy is there because we love it.”

So you can be confident that the next time you bring a bottle to a party, everyone will think you have impeccable taste. More good news! They’re expanding and have recently opened their Farringdon Road store. The guys invited us to design some display solutions for said shop. Here’s a few work in progress shots. If you’d like to see some more images of the shop then head here.

GQ Men of the Year Awards

Taking place in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern, the 19th GQ Men of the Year awards was a night we won’t forget for a while. It’s not often we manage to swap overalls for tuxedos and get out of the workshop and onto the red carpet. 

Here are behind the scenes shots from our recent build on behalf of set designer, George Lewin for the GQ Awards. We built five 8x4ft multifaceted polystyrene shapes that would form the backdrop for the guys from the Flashback to make what was to be called the ‘Instagram booth’.
