The New Anarchists


new english workshop_tool chest

The classic English tool chest, a design that has been transported around the globe for centuries, it has become the symbolic emblem of a true craftsman. Light weight and built to withstand the rigors of a typical journeyman, the hand tools inside have quite literally shaped our world. Now days a new army of wood-be artisans are championing a hand tool renaissance as more of us realize the true value of hand made goods over mass produced hybrids. It’s a quiet revolution of sorts…

Inspirational Woodworking


rising furniture_Robert Van Embricqs

Rising furntiure, cleverly designed, simple, elegant and functional. Robert Van Embricqs focuses on combining functionality with an esthetically pleasing look, this is flexible furniture that reverts to its basic form. A collection that can be stored completely flat when not in use. Robert starts out by making small incisions in a flat surface and studies the otherwise rigid wood’s reaction to the new shape. When it comes to flat pack furniture your best bet was a certain Swedish retailer but Robert has created a collection of unique almost pop-up furniture.
