Rapold Surface Design Show 2014 023We have just returned from the Surface Design Show held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. @surfacethinking

The show opened at 6pm on Tuesday night (7 Feb) and closed yesterday at 5pm. We had taken a modestly sized stand to launch our relationship with Rapold GmbH. 

We have been talking to Harald Rapold about becoming his representative in the UK for some time. Rapold GmbH produce a Rapold Shingles 124fantastic Hand Cleft Roof or Wall Shingle product using skills dating back centuries. Based in Bavaria, they have access to a plentiful supply high quality timber with good continuity of supply. Straight grain very large Larch, tall, large Oak trees to name but two of the species they cleft for shingles.

Rapold Surface Design Show 2014 026In addition to that we displayed the unique Soul of Wood™  internal feature wall cleft timber wall product. This is available in Oak, American Black Walnut and White Fir currently. Special orders in other suitable species are available. This product is kiln dried and can be used in a number of different ways, indeed, limited only by the designers mind.

From the time of opening ’til the doors closed yesterday we had a constant flow of interesting visitors, great conversation, great interest and good comments. We were visited by Design Exchange magazine @demagazine , a publication with fine design focus. They ask North Seven Architect @northsevenarch to visit the show and select their top 10 favourite products. We are proud to say that Soul of Wood™ was selected as one of those products. We are extremely pleased with that accolade and the show in general.

Thank you to all of our visitors, we hope that we will be able to work with you very soon.

Don’t forget, for all of your hardwood and joinery softwood requirements…………………
