Here’s half an Airstream in the workshop ready for a project we are working on…
Will works on an exterior Airstream panel:
In the workshop today the Weber barbecue Airstream has come back in for a revamp before it sets off on the summer barbecue circuit once again.
The Weber Airstream stage and interior design was originally designed here in the UK at ARC workshop.
And elsewhere we have been working on:
We might have mentioned Chris Morrison on the blog before he’s an ARC Airstreams customer and runs CMO Management in London. Part of his job at CMO includes managing indie legends Blur who personally thanked him at the Brit Awards on Tuesday night when they received their Outstanding Contribution to Music award (straight after Adele was controversially cut short during her own acceptance speech).
Blur singer Damon Albarn described Chris as a ‘special person’, saying: “He took us as four completely broke young men and kind of helped us in so many ways. He was a friend as well as a great business manager. He looked after us a treat…Thank you Chris Morrison for everything mate, you are a very dear friend.”
If you watch this video closely you can see Chris dancing around in the audience!
And here’s his Airstream:
As part of an ongoing series focused on Micro Design, the TV crew came back today to film the progress on some of our Airstream Projects.
Here’s a demonstration of the polishing process:
And in this picture our professional carpet fitters are showing the film crew how they are laying new Dalsouple flooring in this Airstream. It is a lovely soft jade colour that looks just right in a 50’s Airstream.
After showing you last week’s lava-lamp inspired work-in-progress, today we take a look at how things are coming along in the minimalist Airstream – demonstrating the versatility of our work and the skill of our design team – from understanding our client’s vision to translating it into the finished article.
Here a stylish red bespoke sofa sets off the simple interior of the Airstream. Underneath is a rock and roll bed.
The drawers have been sanded and sealed to protect the oak they are now ready to be installed.
White handles keep the feeling of simplicity and avoid interfering with the lines of the carpentry.
A visual feast for you today as this Airstream is really starting to take shape, demonstrating the versatility of the design team here at ARC. If the customer wants minimalist, we can do minimalist – or if they want something bright and bold and inspired by iconic design, we can do that too!
This client wants to stand out from the crowd with a retro style interior which has been inspired by the colours of a lava lamp. This is the Airstream with the starry ceiling which I have mentioned in previous posts. It’s also going to have a cocktail cabinet and a periscope. At the moment Darren and the team are busy fitting the stereo and the dazzling purple and orange cabinets and drawers with retractable handles – take a look at all of these lovely pics to see how it’s coming along:
