A Unique-Bicycle-Shelf

Who received for Christmas his awesome new bicycle and calls it lovingly the machine?

Every friend who comes to visit you is presented with this wonder of technology.

Just one problem, where to store it? Where could it be seen by everybody but not be in the way?

“artful-room-divider”

A new success story in creating an artful design for a customer by the kunsttischler .

The brief was to create a room divider which is beautiful to look at and does what it is made for, to divide the room. And it does this in a gentle way with allowing light to come through.

After getting through a detailed questioner and several conversations with the customer it was time to sit at the drawing board and design something unique and stunning.

Our customer approved the design and the material samples and than it was time to get into the making of the “artful-room-divider”

Materials:

Constructional Wenge veneer and Zebrano veneer.

Normal 0.6 Maple veneer

MDF MR

Cast Acrylic rode

Precision:

Prescciosion was one of the big challanges in this project.

The precission to match up all wholes exactly for the cast acrylic rode to pass through and fit together.

Than to fit the all mitre’s precisely.

And finally to install it into the house and keep its precise rectangular shape.

All issues have been with great eye for detail and patience mastered.

The result is stunning.

These are some first photos taken with the iPhone. Soon we will have very high quality photos.

Please, let us know what you think. Feel free to comment on it.

THANK YOU ;o)

The CLOAK ROOM

The Cloak Room

This project had many challenges which didn’t appear until working at it.
The request was to build a unit where the doors would have inside shelves and when opened give space to fill with many many many! shoes…

The outside of the cabinet veneered with fumed figured eucalyptus.
The inside shelves are all veneered with rippled maple.
And the inside walls are in maple veneer.

The fumed figured eucalyptus is rarely used for this kind of furniture. It has a fantastic texture that gives it the look of leather.

The Globe-Wernicke EXPERIENCE…

We had last year the pleasure to work on a project which included the renovation of a Globe-Wernicke book cabinet.   The Globe-Wernicke Ltd was founded in 1899. So the units are more or less from that time.   It was great to wittness how well made furniture will not loose in style and function even after 120 years!    Everybody in the robinson house studio admired how the cabinet had been done and found it sad to have to spray it.    It was mainly all made in solid oak or ply veneered oak.

 enjoy the photos..

Two glass sheets where original with the defects from the glass making at the time. And it was thin!   One is just over 2 mm and the other just about 3mm!   The patent system to stack them to any height or width is still fully functional.   And the opening mechanism for the framed glass doors is doing what it has done over the last century without hesitation.   We added to the cabinet some more contemporary cabinets and let it spray at the Spray Centre ltd.

If you would like to find out more about the Globe-Wernicke company and its innovative furniture at a revolutionary time have a look at The Globe-Wernicke Ltd or just give us a ring at Alvaro Rodriguez, Design and Making.
