I am very happy to introduce to the world my beautiful son
Arlo Oliver Cosens , who appeared in this world on Wednesday
at 4.45 p.m weighing 7 lbs. He's perfect and we love him very much.

The shop will be closed for two weeks to allow us to enjoy this
gorgeous creature in his first weeks of life.

I want to thank my beautiful wife Nicky for the pain she went through to
bless us with this gift.

Thank you

The Frightening Beauty of Bunkers

In Bunker Archeology, urban philosopher and cultural theorist
Paul Virilio turns his attention—and camera—to the ominous yet
strangely compelling German bunkers from WW II that lie
abandoned on the coast of France. These ghostly reminders of
destruction and oppression prompt Virilio to consider the nature
of war and existence, in relation to both the Second World War and
contemporary times. Follow this link to see more or click on the title
to buy the book.


Stunning Images from a new book called Asylum by American
photographer Christopher Payne. Christopher has spent years
exploring some of the 250 asylums across America and recording
his discoveries in these haunting images. The first image is a tooth
brush locker. This book is realeased by MIT in the next month.
Whilst you wait for the release check his website by clicking here.

Industrial Dining tables

Here is a preview of our new style industrial
dining table taken in the workshop just after
The oak parquet blocks were burnt
and then waxed. This gives the stunning black finish
and removes the top layer of grain to leave a gorgeous
driftwood feel to the surface.
The blocks were then laid in a herring bone pattern.
This allows the light to refract in different ways on the
top giving an unusual visual display at various angles.
We would like to thank Tracey for sticking her neck out
and allowing us to try this experimental method. Thanks
also to Edwin who came up with the method and Lorena
of EL Furniture Brighton.
The table will be delivered tonight and I hope Tracey likes
it as much as we do.

David Maisel

More amazing photographs from this very talented
photographer. These are canisters of cremated 
remains of psychiatric patients. The natural minerals 
in the ashes have reacted with the metal to create these
beautiful colours which David has captured beautifully.
