5 issues that encourage me:
1. Woven fence This can be a shut up of a timber woven fence in a north London park. I feel it’s each lovely and practical and has an apparent hand crafted aesthetic but these fences are produced on mass. That industrialization of craft is absolutely necessary to our work and strategy.
2. Handles We love handles. That is perhaps a wierd factor to say!
However we take a variety of photographs of them — this specific one is in a Swedish manufacturing unit. I feel the economic colors and buildings are actually pretty. Its in these environments we get lots of our inspiration. However primarily — clearly a deal with is extraordinarily sensible — however we additionally discover loads of trustworthy and quiet magnificence in them,
three. Timber stack That is taken in a Portuguese timber furnishings manufacturing unit. We just like the dramatic transformation of one thing so wild — with its bark and age on present reworked within the palms of expert craftsmen into one thing so engineered and managed.
