The making of the British Spirit Cabinet

These images show the process behind the making of the British Spirit Cabinet- designed and made to exhibit at Cheltenham Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design.

A visit to The London Distillery Company in Battersea

Having met the LDC team at Imbibe Live, at Olympia, I paid a visit to their headquarters in Battersea. They offered me the chance to see where they make their artisan Spirits and the process of how they get from sampling & research to the final bottled product (a process not dissimilar to that of designing and making furniture). Seeing the equipment provided an obvious material palette and the team offered plenty of expert insight into what should be included in my Spirit Cabinet.

Many thanks to Darren, Joseph & Graham for their time and help.

Chest of Drawers & Bedside tables delivered to complete the room

These pieces were delivered to a returning client in Southwick, East Sussex, who I'd previously made a Break-fronted wardrobe. The Chest-of-Drawers were designed to compliment the Edwardian inspired wardrobe and I used the Break-fronted feature as the handles for the drawers. The client allowed me some design freedom with the Bedside Tables, so I went with a more contemporary design using materials and a colour palette that tied all the pieces in the room together.
