Made to measure worktops by GEC Anderson are created in one continuous piece, to the exact shape and size prescribed by the client, with no joins at the sink bowls, edges or upstands. Worktops are flat instead of sloping or fluted, with 18mm bonded substrate, for strength, rigidity and ease of fixing. Installation is simple and rapid with no further work on site required. Available with either timber or stainless steel base cabinets or stainless steel legs. Sink bowls are positioned where required, in any combination or arrangement, as well as cut-outs for tapholes, hobs and columns etc.
The Swilken bench is influenced by the bridge of the same name, on the 18th green of St. Andrew’s golf course, and reflects the subtle arc and the structural principles of this famous and historic footbridge. The top for the bench is built from laminated strips of reclaimed hardwoods and secured to concrete legs via hidden stainless steel mounting brackets, then finished with a marine grade mix of natural tung oils and polymers; the finish is of the highest quality and durability.
The Dane Chair is based on original Danish-style furniture. Made from stainless steel, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and is lightweight and stackable. The seat is available in handwoven PVC, which comes in either black or tan with an internal stainless steel wire for extra strength and form. The seat is also available in ply or other upholstered versions. The Dane Chair has a matching low stool and high stool with back rest. Cubus will be exhibiting at Designersblock London from 18 - 21 September.
Manhattan, seen here, is a dining table designed by Nitul Panchal for Swanky Design. Panchal believes in designing for the person who refuses to be satisfied with the mundane and the mass-produced. This table features a 10mm (0.4”) clear toughened glass top with the corners radiused. The legs are available in chromed steel or polished/brushed stainless steel. Manhattan is made in England.
Accomplished designer Simon Pengelly has created a striking modular public seating system, named hm83, for Hitch Mylius. A number of hm83 units have recently been installed in the departure lounge at St Pancras International Eurostar terminal. The preformed ply frame is upholstered in CMHR foams and supported on stainless steel legs. Available in a wide choice of fabrics and hides, it can be supplied with a chromed bumper bar to protect the frame from potential damage by luggage and trolleys. The units can be joined together using linking sections.
The Faraday Stool was named after Michael Faraday, the English scientist who founded our current knowledge of electromagnetic physics. After researching the physics of making a transparent, light but strong chair, Dutch designers Teun Fleskens and Ingmar Cramers – from the Design Academy Eindhoven – became inspired by the Faraday Cage, an enclosure formed by conducting material, which blocks out external static electrical fields. The stool is available in coloured powdercoating, stainless steel or in a chromeplated version, optionally with a leather seat.
Spiral’s latest staircase is straight, and can be found in Islington where it is used to elegantly divide the kitchen from the dining room. The stair is supported by stepped stainless steel stringers and has composite oak treads with stainless inserts to provide grip and minimise wear.
Stainless steel rods keep the gap between treads below 100mm, which extend out almost as far as the glass. An attractive aspect of this stair is that the glass is low iron, which means that it doesn’t have the usual green tint but a clearer and bluer hue. This option improves the appearance of the glass balustrade at a relatively low additional cost.
The new office line series from Vipp was designed by Vipp’s founder, Holger Nielsen, back in 1985, and has never before been in production. A series of wastepaper bins in two sizes, the series is ideal for both home and office use. Vipp 51 and Vipp 52 match the classic pedal bin from 1939 in terms of design and quality, and are made from stainless steel and rubber. The bins are fitted with discreet castors, making them easy to move around, and a concealed top ring, which hides the bin liner.
Available colours are stainless steel and black.
