Rupert Blanchard at Ally Capellino / Material Details

the following photos were taken on my mobile phone to record some of the details and finishes in the new Ally Capellino store, please note that these photos were taken as work was still in progress...

 adjustable shelving system inspired by post office sorting offices and industrial warehouse racking, i designed this modular shelving using simple box section steel and angle iron with reclaimed scaffolding boards. the steel is black polished and sealed, the wood is worn and bleached from years of use on building sites before being washed, sanded and waxed

above- view across the store from behind the counter. the counter top recycles the old worn leather worktop from the old shop. the wooden table with the iron bases dates from the 1860s and until recently spent its whole life in a church in wales.

shop counter materials: worn leather work surface, puzzled together square sections of salvaged interior doors, pitch pine flooring joists.

 industrial black metal pipework used as hanging rails attached to reclaimed victorian pin wall cladding that was sourced to piece in the original wall finish.
 reclaimed worn scaffolding boards used in the bench/display/storage areas. only boards that were no longer usable within the scaffolding trade were used on the project.
a number of display plinths were made from scrap salvaged domestic interior doors
more scrap door sections used as wall panelling
original vintage science lab stands/clamps were sourced to display the bags

 i found this pine wall display cabinet in a car boot sale one day in essex at around 5am. it would have once been a key cabinet for the m.o.d.

 a late victorian shop counter display cabinet
 the display plinths were designed to be used on their own or they all stack up together to make one long refectory type table
original paint work to the lab stands, cleaned and sealed
