Won as the Best British Product Design at the British Design Awards 2011 by Elle Decoration. This young designer uses mismatched drawers – taken from a 1960s dressing table and a 1950s science lab desk, say to create striking hybrid chests. Rupert Blanchard’s furniture creates recycled art from old, often wooden objects.
The furniture available from Elemental in London’s Spitalfields.
He is currently working on a new range to be sold through Objects for Use, the shop he plans to open with friend Momoko Mizutani in his Shoreditch workshop later this year.
