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.

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.

An amazing weekend at the robinson house studio….

Thousands of people came to our private view on Friday and to our open house on Saturday and Sunday at the robinson house studio. We couldn’t keep up with wine and snacks. Cars and busses had no space to park. Local traffic busses had to be called in for help. People queued for hours to get in. Everybody was desperate to walk the red carpet.

It was an amazing event over thr

ee days. The atmosphere was buzzing. Everybody had to answer thousands of questions and it felt like millions of pictures were taken and endless hours of filming…

Also on Saturday and Sunday the storming of the Raw-Food- Cakes was incredible if not to say violent. It was a cake massacre.

Millions of pounds exchanged hands for the highly luxury objects. Corks of champagne bottles were a constant sound in the background.

In all of it two trusted and selfless souls one from France, Strasbourg Daniel Ruckstuhland one from England and the city of Brighton Simon Featherstone took the difficult and challenging task to test the effects and comfort of one of the exhibitions objects from Alvaro Rodriguez
. Some say it was the same two fellows who tried it last year september at the launch of robinson house studio. They certainly enjoyed it much more this year!!! For both o f them the biggest challenge was to surrender to gravity.  Both test – bed – pilots came out of it unharmed and recovered quickly after some red – special – fermented – grape juice was offered.

A hidden scotch was a seducing tool used by one of the other compadres which resulted in a Have -a-look-at-hicks-this-cabinet…some are still suffering from the magic in that scotch…

Others took more of a home-studio-cinema approach for lurking the masses on to his prototype-objects …unfortunate the repeatedly playing of the film music forced some of the members of this honorable club to punish the cinema manager and send him behind Swedish curtains (ask if you are not German or don’t know what it means)

The sands;

one object was surrounded by SAND …why? Nobody really knows but the visitors couldn’t resist to check and look and STEP on to it.

After all it was a very moving weekend for all visitors, participants, organizers, managers, celebrities, artists, adults, children, animals, aliens… No, aliens didn’t come at least not over the red carpet.

It is expected that the next two weekends will be a total traffic chaos in and around Newhaven and east Sussex. Outside Newhaven are being prepared parking possibilities to deal with the upcoming masses of busses and cars. Roamers are that even the ferry from Dieppe to Newhaven will increase the number of crossings for these two weekends so its easier to deal with the extreme numbers of fans from France and the mainland of Europe coming over to our humble place.

This all might seem to you very unbelievable but trust me this is how we experienced it and if you don’t believe us than find it out for your self. (And don’t tell me I have not warned you…)
