Stop buying rubbish.

Table by Wilfred Kalf


Factories make things to sell. Marketing people sell the stuff. Good stuff or rubbish, they don’t care. You don’t need everything you own, but you thought you needed it when you bought it. Let’s face it, you can’t stop yourself, you’re a shopper, well it’s not against the law. It’s what we do in the western world. You’re curious. If you stop buying rubbish people will stop making it. If you buy beautiful things, people will make more of them. I promise. We make cabinets, beautiful cabinets, cabinets to hold your curiosities.


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
