Cast iron library shelving system. Double sided with 3 bays and over 30 adjusting shelves. Remarkably the system can be flat packed and built in situ. All original components including the wooden shelves. 2 sets available. British, c1900.





Wood Fired Shower


We believe that this was formerly a campaign shower. A wood burning stove at the back heats the water for the shower. The tank is copper with the chimney running through the middle. Connections for a cold water supply and a mixer tap for hot/cold and shower/bath. French, c 1900.

A collector piece!






' La douche à Raizeux ' by Robert Doisneau 1949.





Hot!!! But not as fun as this...

Harvest time!


If you still haven't picked your apples, these ladders might be very useful! If you don't have an orchard, they can be great at home in the kitchen and bathroom, or to reach some books on a high shelf in the library...

Elegant orchard ladders. Made with a pitch pine frame and turned oak treads. Could be used with or without the bracing armatures - which are easily removed if needed. 3 available. British, c1940.







Art Deco Hall Stand

Art Deco Hall Stand showing superior metal working skills. The piece has its original mirror plate and a fossilised marble table piece. There are 8 coat hooks, 2 hat/box shelves and 2 umbrella/stick stand. French, c1920.


The Art Deco movement had the desire to be modern, influenced by the bold geometric forms of Cubism,  in reaction to the Art Nouveau which was inspired by the organic vegetal world.

Art Deco was a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. It influenced the design of buildings, furniture, jewellery, fashion, cars, movie theatres, trains, ocean liners, and everyday objects such as radios and vacuum cleaners. It took its name, short for Arts Décoratifs, from the Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes held in Paris in 1925. It combined modernist styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.

THE DESIGNER MAKER

Truscott studied at Edinburgh College of Art. She uses 'drawing as a process to explore movement, time and physicality. The majority of her work originates from the landscape and is influenced by repetition, relationship and traces of use'. For the last two years, she has been exploring and mastering basketry skills which are a logical progression to her artistic approach.
This September, during the London Design Festival, Elemental’s flagship Shoreditch store will sell an exclusive selection of Truscott’s handmade woven pieces along other selected designer makers. These two workshops are a great creative and learning opportunity for anyone interested in conscious, natural and handcrafted products. 


'My practice explores relationships between the seen and unseen, recording linear, layered or interwoven traces in site specific contexts. I play with the idea that a line can be a physical object and also a train of thought. I make sculptural forms and functional vessels using basketry skills and materials which have provenance to a particular area or history. I like to use stake and strand weaving and wrapping techniques which have been employed by humans ever since we have existed, fastening and interlocking lines which have structural integrity through their own dependency and the human relationship of designer, user, maker and artisan'.
