We were greatly enamoured of Gitta Gschwendtner’s Animal Wall, a public art project in Cardiff Bay, where she placed 1,000 bird and bat boxes made out of wood crete and differing levels and projections at the top of a wall. The Animal Wall’s form playfully referenced Brutalism, but for birdies.

Gschwendtner was ideal to partner with design-led, family-run kitchen maker Schiffini to produce a concept kitchen/art piece for us. The finished design references the work of sculptor Donald Judd, in the use of ply and the way the drawers are placed at differing levels and depths. §
