Hotel in derelict dock warehouses

Hotel in derelict dock warehouses | Industrial Furniture | Scoop.it

"The Henry Jones Art Hotel offers high-class accommodations in what used to be derelict dock warehouses and a former jam factory  and is an architectural success story—a story where old meets new, where history meets the present while paying homage to both.  It begins with old wood beams and weathered brickwork, carefully preserved and artfully exposed by award-winning architects who intentionally incorporate manufacturing machinery and sandstone walls into the mix. The story continues by incorporating contemporary design with an emphasis on elements and place, then showcasing interior walls with a mixture of aboriginal and modern-day art."

Makers: The New Industrial Revolution by Chris Anderson - review – 100% Solutions

Makers: The New Industrial Revolution by Chris Anderson - review – 100% Solutions | Industrial Furniture | Scoop.it

Chris Anderson thinks you might be a toy company. After telling the heartwarming anecdote of how he fabricated some doll's house furniture for his daughters using a new 3D printer – which works like an inkjet printer but sprays down layers of liquefied plastic to make a solid object – the former Wired editor says he might never buy doll's house furniture again. "If you're a toy company," Anderson threatens, "this story should give you chills." I didn't get chills, but then I'm not a toy company. This is the sort of book, however, that is mainly aimed at corporate persons, and at individuals only to the extent that they work for corporate persons,

Aesop Islington - Reclaimed wood from French monastery

Aesop Islington - Reclaimed wood from French monastery | Industrial Furniture | Scoop.it

French designers Ciguë modelled this north London store for skin and haircare brand Aesop on a 1930s medical laboratory.  Ciguë used a palette of traditional materials, including reclaimed wood sourced from a 200-year-old French monastery for the floors and cabinets.  A single surface of polished white marble provides worktops and washbasins, with glass taps and pipes that show liquid flowing through them.
