“The Monolith” Launches at the Winter Lights – Canary Wharf

We are excited to be launching our very latest edition to the Tempus timepiece collection. “The Monolith” will be on show at the Winter Lights festival at Canary Wharf in the new year. Showing an exclusive new floor standing design which is a modern take on the traditional grand father clock, in a design that is only possible with the unique manufacturing properties of Corian.

Alongside the floor standing design will be one of our classic circular Tempus designs in carbon antique mirror.

The show is open from the 16th of January to the 27th of January and is open to the public at no cost between 5pm – 10pm.

Please come down and view the all the amazing work on show from a wide collection of international artists.

With a huge thanks to Corian and CDUK for their support with the show and allowing us to push the boundaries of what can be done and achieved with this wonderful material. We used Ice Glacier Corian due to its illumination qualities. There isn’t another material that allows us to thermo form it, engrave it, illuminate it, seamless join it and polish it. This design would not be possible in any other material.

We have been continuing our development and exploration of surfaces materials with Tempus and are excited to share images of our new Iridescent collection.

Following on from the work we did designing and building the bar and tables in the glade at Sketch some ten or so years ago, we are now  very proud to have one of the very latest Tempus editions in Carbon antique mirror hanging on the landing as you head up to the 2 Michelin starred gastronomic restaurant.

Specially programmed to suit the lighting of its surrounding.

Tempus and Bubble Chair at Assington Barn

Church barn in Assington, Sudbury just outside Colchester, is the latest home to be completed by David Nossiter architects. It is the second project we have worked on with David and third project with the owner of the property, design enthusiast Jeremy Witt.

The property features a champagne edition Tempus timepiece and a hanging wire bubble chair in its grand and spacious central space. The huge ceiling heights go up to almost 6m and have huge surfaces of old red brick work to fill the space with colour and texture.

Our steel wire hanging bubble chair in powder coated white finish with grey leather cushion allows for a wonderfully relaxing view out over the fields behind the property.
