design/richard shed studio for shoreditch trust

Richard Shed Studio recently finished a commissioned  project for the Shoreditch Trust in East London. They designed and fabricated chairs, armchairs, tables and cabinets for their Eco-Conference facility.

Shed & Co put the final touches on the furniture in the office that they share with some Belgian friends of mine and turned the place into a fabulous ‘tafel-land’ with about 60 chairs and tables.

Richard Shed:  “The design of the collection references both traditional wood working methods and modern detailing achieved by calculated digital manufacturing.  The chairs are milled from solid ash.  The back rests are rolled metal parts clad in a thick, warm natural felt. All metal details, fixtures and fittings are powder coated in a striking sulphur yellow.  The entire commission was produced in our East London workshops and where possible we worked with local suppliers and manufacturers, using natural materials from sustainable sources.”
