Exhibition stand at Toyfair 2013

We were approached by our client Mako Creative to help them design and build a stand for their client Tolo.

We have taken the idea from their new Pop Up Farm House toy and made roofs with chimney that housed lights above the slat walls where they displayed their goods.

The exhibition was in London Olympia and the position of the stand meant they had a supporting column in the middle of it that we had to work with. We have clad the column and added a roof to it. The sides had 3D elements to it – a window to the side and a replica of the toy’s rattle, buttons and spinning beads that were in fact, spinning and not just a prop.

A picket fence was added to the plinth at the bottom of the column to finish the look and feel of the stand.

The client also sells a range of gardening tools and these were housed in a shed – complete with tongue & groove walls and a shed roof on top.

It was an absolute pleasure to be able to design such fun stand and receive the great feedback that we did from the client as well as the show visitors.

Workspace Installation

We were approached by Beechtree Community Centre in Whitchurch (Shropshire) to help them with fitting out of the new workspace that they were in a process of extending and renovating. The space was a mix of the existing old chapel and a brand new contemporary extension.

All of the desks had to be made as the spaces were small and unique (i.e. no square corners!) and the process of the design and build was a challenging one. We had to coordinate with the builders, the architect, the catering company and of course, our client. And we were building the units while the builders were plastering and adding radiators to where we wanted to fit the desks etc. Plenty of site visits were necessary to ensure we were all on the same page.

With only a week behind the original schedule we were on site and fitting the units. These are the pictures taken on the day. Some graphics were added to the reception desk and we will post these after the opening day on 10th January.

All desks were made out of high quality armoured protected laminate finished in subtle texture except for the front of the reception desk that were in high gloss. The cafe unit was spray painted as well as the decorative lines on the counter that were then attached to a high gloss laminate sheet.
