Industrial Chic...by Brigitte Durieux


The French journalist and author Brigitte Durieux, who is an expert in the field of modernist industrial design, recently visited our shop in Shoreditch High Street. 

She was really surprised and impressed to see not one but two very rare and original sets of Cafe Furniture each comprising of a table and set of 4 chairs Multipl's designed by Joseph Mathieu in 1920 in Lyon, France. It was one of the few occasions that she had seen this unusual design of table.

In her beautifully illustrated books, Brigitte tells the story of objects that have emerged from the factory and into our living rooms to become cult modernist furniture.

They reveal the reach, versatility and long-lasting appeal of industrial design through the remarkable histories of these distinguished objects. Discover more classic industrial pieces at elemental.uk.com.




Wonderland Magazine

Alun Davies, set designer and  John Akehurst, photographer worked together to create a 70's vibe for the May 2015 issue of Wonderland Magazine. 

They hired from us an iconic perspex chair designed by Alexander Begge for Casalino. The elegant curved shape and smoked ghost perspex frame with zesty green upholstered seat were one of the original series manufactured by Casalino.

Our set have now been sold and on their way to the United States...
