On a recent trip to Tokyo we came across Peregrine furniture. They are a Japanese based company that makes furniture for the great outdoors. Not only are the products are perfect for camping trips, are beautifully designed, and foldable for moving about. We have just ordered one of the Grand Ecdysis Benches for a current project in Fulham. Here is a selection of some of their products:
What we are listening to on site this week.....
Thought worth sharing one of our design knock ups for our current project in Faraday Road SW19. As part of our architecture service, we have recently started preparing cgi's like these ones in addition to our 3D modelling, to give our clients a sense of scale, proportions, and importantly the key sightlines through the building.
The project is currently on site and the works involve a full house renovation with the addition of a 6m ground floor extension to the rear, and dormer addition in the loft space to form a master bedroom
Run by Ben Uyeda, HomeMade Modern is a DIY website that showcases easy to make products for the home. With plenty of concrete / copper / marble / wood the products are really well selected and on trend. Each episode gives easy to follow steps, the tools required and the cost of the materials... so really anyone can get involved
Its great to have seen it grow so much over the last few years and to see Bens continued inspiration by bringing out new products for people to build so freqeuntly
Created by Floris Schoonderbeek, the Groundfridge is a modern approach to the traditional root cellar. The 'fridge' is installed below the ground, with none of the excavated soil wasted as it is then reused on top of the Groundfridge. Using principles that go back centuries, it uses the insulating properties of the soil to keep the food cool below ground
It shares the same volume as 20 refrigerators (3000litres) which would typically need 6620kWh to power for a year . It keeps food at 10degrees and does not rely on electricity to function
Beautifully designed, innovative thinking... values which are at the heart of all their products
We have posted before, and proudly own, Weltevrees Outdooroven... with the Groundfridge now on our wish-list. There are plenty of other products on their site worth checking out: http://www.weltevree.nl/ENG/home
