As well as our huge selection of original found and restored antiques, we also stock the work of several fantastic designer makers.

London based design duo Harry Dwyer and Charlie Waller have a wealth of experience between them, including inventing, electronics design, video directing, stop frame animating and engineering. They have been involved in many ambitious projects, most notably building the world’s first cardboard houseboat from waste cardboard in 2016. 

Their ongoing project, Aircraft Workshop sees the pair constructing a range of products including bird boxes, benches and sleep masks from upcycled parts of decommissioned Airbus'. They have been featured on TV shows such as Channel 4’s ‘Super Salvage’ (2014) and the US show 'Trashformers.' 


A selection of Bird Boxes, made from the air conditioning and fuel pipes from an Airbus 320. Available now on our website.

Also in stock is this Trunk Bench. It is the perfect seating height and can also be used for stowage/storage. A definite aircraft feel to this. Built from the cabin storage lid and accessories from an Airbus A320 along with birch-ply and recycled valchromat composite wood.

Reclaimed, Re-imagined Type Trays



New in stock we have these striking reclaimed printer’s type trays. Re-imagined and re-fitted with colourful perspex off-cuts by JET. They can be hung individually or as part of a group and are available in a range of colours and configurations.



The trays would have originally been used to house individual letters and punctuation to be printed on the letterpress, in an array of fonts and sizes. Each tray we have has a rich history of use and it's a great way to preserve and celebrate something so reliable and beautiful. 


You can see some print trays in action in the video below and get a feel of how ours were used in their previous lives!
