From the 22nd – 24th May, Håg’s London showroom will once again be part of Clerkenwell Design Week, the UK’s leading independent design festival. They are kindly hosting us and we will be creating an intimate studio where we will be painting one of the world’s largest handmade globes throughout the week.
Bellerby & Co founder Peter Bellerby and a small team of artists will relocate to HÅG’s showroom on Central Street for the duration of the festival, offering a unique insight into our skilled and delicate work.
The installation will feature the painting a 127cm ‘Churchill’ globe, the largest sized globe we make, with Peter Bellerby present to discuss with visitors the finer points of the craft, and the challenges faced when creating such intricate and bespoke pieces of art.
Bellerby & Co’s relationship with HÅG came from the demanding qualities required by our workers. A robust, versatile seating solution that allows our artists to carry out their work without putting any undue stress on our team. For over a year now, our artists and woodworkers have been seated on HÅG Capisco chairs.
It all started with a chair – Bellerby & Co’s eBay Purchase (right) alongside a brand new HÅG Capisco
Speaking on the subject, Peter said “The thing that I have learnt with setting up my own company is that we have had to really go to the best companies for anything that gets made for us. We have things made by Aston Martin technicians, we have things made by Formula One fabricators… Because we are sitting, sometimes 6 hours a day, we need to go to someone who takes pride in their product, who make incredibly good handmade products, and that, for me, is why HÅG is such a good company to work with.”
Watch out for a couple of videos HÅG has made with us, as well as a great competition to win a 23cm Mini Desk Globe from them!
Alongside Bellerby & Co’s live globe making activity during CDW, Flokk has teamed up with Wellworking to host a seminar titled “Designed for Wellbeing”. Space is limited so click here to sign up now for free.
