I’ve been into Such and Such Co ‘s pop up shop in Seven Dials a couple of times over the past two weeks. Firstly to be introduced by PR legend Justyna Sowa and then invited to an event that Such and Such were holding.
Brother and sister, Alistair and Nikki run the online design shop, Such and Such, but for a few weeks in the run up to Christmas they are based in a pop up shop in Seven Dials.
Ali and Nikki have a great eye and stock their shop with unique hand crafted items from designer makers. These products are stylish, simple, well designed and have a certain earthiness and substance to them. A quality which is apparent when you get to know Ali and Nikki who are from the peak district.
Let me share some of my favourites with you – starting with these concrete and oak clocks. It’s the desk clocks that I absolutely love, they are weighted at the bottom, so you can roll them about and they return to the upright position – clever, fun design.
1) Concrete Wall Clocks £95 – Clock with silent sweeping movement and oak minute and hour hands. Designed and made by Wild + Wood from cast concrete using granite aggregates from a quarry in Leicestershire. Available in off white or grey.
2) Concrete Table Clocks £65 – Clock with silent sweeping movement and oak minute and hour hands. Deigned and made by Wild + Wood from cast concrete using granite aggregates from a quarry in Leicestershire. Available in off white or grey.
When I first walked into the shop I spotted these Ceramic French Press when I walked in and just knew I had to have them on the list. The copper pull against the minimalist ceramic body is a great little touch adding a bit of ‘luxe’.
3) Ceramic French Press Cafetiere £110 – French Press Cafetière consisting of a copper pull, stainless steel plunger and a ceramic body that has a matte exterior and a high gloss interior finish. Designed and manufactured by Yield Design, an independent design house established in San Francisco in 2012 by Andrew Deming and Rachel Gant, and now based in St Augustine, Florida.
My digital equipment has a few covers and I’m always looking out for new ones. The images here can’t show you just how soft these are, the leather is great to touch and you can see that with age, it’s going to look even better.
4) Leather iPad cover £50 – Padded leather iPad sleeve made using eco-leather, which is leather that is not treated with heavy-chemicals. Designed in Amsterdam by O My Bag and handmade in India by fair-trade workers.
All available at suchandsuch.co or at the pop up shop in Earlham Street, Seven Dials until 6th December.
