New Work: Sunspel Womenswear Store

A new Sunspel Womenswear interior in London’s Chiltern Street. The materials palette  includes some beautiful timber and dowling for the rails and wall displays and a stunning oak herringbone floor with a carpeted changing area at the rear of the store. The space is accessible from both the street entrance and also via the menswear store. More photos on the website.

Nanna Ditzel

We’ve been researching dining tables for a current womenswear space that will be opening shortly and thought it might be nice to highlight just one of the inspiring designers whose work we were looking at: Nanna Ditzel.

Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) initially trained as a cabinet maker and graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1946. She established her studio with Jørgen Ditzel and spent a period of her later working life in London where she helped to found the international furniture house, Interspace. Read more about her life and work here.

A prolific furniture designer who produced pieces that she might use in everyday life – such as the high chair and the nursing chair – Ditzel experimented with different production techniques and materials such as bamboo and cane. Alongside furniture, she also designed ceramics, textiles and jewellery, most notably for the Danish brand Georg Jensen. Here are just a few images of her wonderful work:

Sunspel Redchurch St

After an extensive refurbishment, Sunspel’s Shoreditch store on the corner of Redchurch Street and Boundary Street has now reopened. Having taken over the adjacent shop unit, this newly redesigned store now has twice the floor space than it had previously.

We relocated the changing rooms to the basement creating a much more spacious sales area on the ground floor and added signature details such as the beautiful reclaimed wooden panelling. In a previous life these had been garage doors that originally came from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The striking green enamel chandelier that you can see in the photos on the projects page here is inspired by the lamps used in the Sunspel factory at Long Eaton.
