Reebok, Record-Play and Ryan Frank

Take a studio space in the heart of London and Barcelona’s respective creative hubs, Shoreditch and Raval, add the latest fly trainers courtesy of Reebok, plus a load of music-making equipment, and top it off with bespoke furniture and fittings from furniture designer Ryan Frank and your end result should look a lot like the Record-Play Living Room. An exclusive, private space to host musicians and artists.
Frank’s designs help transform the space into a warm and inviting place. Artists can make the most of the experience by lounging around on furniture that is contemporary and comfortable, yet also made with honest, natural materials. Using a combination of spruce ply, hemp fabric and recyclable aluminium, his multi-functional designs range from sofas and stools, to shelving and lighting. Seating doubles up as useful storage, whilst shelving solutions further optimise the use of space by conveniently housing the stools when not in use. This is the first in the series of ‘Living Rooms’ – Berlin and Barcelona to follow shortly.

Earlier this month eco superstore NUDGE opened its doors in Helsinki and I was lucky enough to get invited to design and produce the shops display furniture. I took inspiration from the original Hackney Shelf..[an experimental project i did a few years ago…where i installed white boards at graffiti hot-spots around London]

The end result was a family of large, fat and small Hackney style shelves all displaying the sexy merchandise Nudge has on offer, which is a mix of eco clothing, furniture and accessories.

Besides the display furniture…. you can also find my full retail collection on display in the heart of Helsinki, including Isabella & Enzo stools, Zilka clothes hangers, TAPE cork accessory range and The Hackney Shelf.

A big thanks to Anu and Monica from Matteria for making this happen
