Globe Zero Evening

On Tuesday evening we hosted our launch party for the GlobeZero4 exhibition in the showroom. We had a good attendance of architects and designers who were given a presentation from UK agent Ruth Simpson. Ruth spoke of the designers and told the stories behind the designs of some of the products which was very interesting. We all then spent some time playing musical chairs and trying out all the different pieces. The Plasma benches were a big hit with everyone and were considered to be the most flexible and commercial pieces on show. The GlobeZero4 furniture will remain in the showroom for another three weeks allowing more people to come and try it out!

Quartermile Azurean Q5

We have recently furnished the new 2 bedroomed Azurean Q5 showflat for Quartermile

Using a variety of suppliers including a new supplier, Zeitraum, we have created a spectacular space. 

We used Zeitraum for the bed and storage units and I'm sure you'll agree the bookcase in the sitting room is striking. 

The sofas and chairs are from B&B Italia and the unusual light next to the sofa is part of the new Diesel range coming from Foscarini

The dining table is from Lammhults and we used another Italian company MDF Italia for the Flow chairs to compliment it.  

Another amazing light is Ingo Maurer's Aikaduli shown in the bedroom.  

This is just a very small sample of the look we can create and with our experienced design staff we are always able to create that special look.

Photo Shoot

Following the redecoration of our showroom we are delighted that Mike Byrne, a photography student at Edinburgh's Napier University, selected it as the backdrop for his assignment to photograph award winning product designer Andy Murray - Andy recently won the 2009 D&AD Student Awards for furniture design with his Sea Defence collection of tables and shelves. Mike commented that having a well designed location makes taking pictures a lot easier and obviously we agree!
