Commercial Installations

Burger Co.

Burger Co. was the first project where we were given complete freedom to create outlandish designs combining both modern and reclaimed materials. Reclaimed church pews and used scaffold boards were integrated into the fixed seating and reclaimed copper used to highlight certain features of the bar and external façade. Reclaimed factory light fittings were modified to give a contemporary industrial look. The external sign was made out of reclaimed scaffold boards and made in such a way that the letters are illuminated by colour changing LED’s.

Brewstone provided many challenges including how to turn reclaimed Hardwood Jarrah railway sleepers into functional pieces of furniture. We learnt many valuable lessons but the hard work paid off and we delivered a unique product which is extremely durable. We also hand made the wire framed chairs which can be upholstered in any fabric required. On the bar side we produced a copper bar made from reclaimed copper water tanks hand seamed together giving a look that cannot be recreated with modern copper sheet. The beer taps are housed in old copper heater components, which have been given a high polish. We also turned old wooden cable drums into tabletops with illuminated tiles that were pinstriped and plugged with jarrah giving the surface a smooth finish.

Peppermint Swansea

For peppermint Swansea we created a bespoke polished concrete table with recycled beer bottle glass and steel girder base. 30 steel tube stool bases made from 3mm thick steel fully welded for superior strength. Fixed tables with inset tiles. Unique lighting made from old garden heaters and tables made from reclaimed scaffold boards.

Cru 42 Mumbles

We were excited to be involved in this project to showcase our expertise in working in both metal and live edge wood to produce a high end bar that oozes industrial chic. The bar was constructed out of moisture resistant MDF and then clad with welded zinc sheet. The shelves and toilet vanity units were made from local live edge pippy oak and gave a great contrast to the metal.

Tech-hub Swansea

For Tech-hub we produced our longest copper bar to date being 7m long using copper from reclaimed water tanks proving size is not an issue. Tech-hub loved the reclaimed copper so much they commissioned several water tank light fittings to adorn the bar area. In the main reception we constructed a reception desk combining galvanised sheet with copper coated mesh and a stunning slab of local kiln dried elm with Tetris style bowtie joint to compliment the tech-hub theme.

Lil London Swansea

Lil London commissioned us to create a copper t bar made from reclaimed water tanks to fit onto a double decker bus they had converted into a spectacular bar. It was a real challenge to get the high quality finish but our attention to detail made it look like it was meant to be there. We also constructed some several copper top tables with custom steel legs. We also constructed another scaffold board external sign we are proud of with hand made carnival style letters and colour changing LED letters.

Swansea University 52 Degrees

We were commissioned with giving the newly installed bar in the recently built engineering campus since it lacked the unique feel you get with our creations at The BOX Furniture. Having to re-work a newly installed bar was frustrating but we were happy to give it the make over it much needed whilst providing the storage lacking from the original design. Steel box section and copper coated mesh was used to construct the immensely strong shelving/storage and the bar top and cladding was made from reclaimed scaffold boards. Copper water tanks were used to create the light fittings adding to the look whilst being reclaimed fitted in with Swansea universities support of sustainability. Swansea University were looking for one statement piece of furniture and I think we delivered when we created a functional table from a vintage industrial pillar drill which has a rise and fall table top and compliments the history of engineering in the university.

The Ship Inn Gower

We predominantly used reclaimed hardwood Jarrah railway sleepers to manufacture the tables and cladding to give the bar and restaurant the feel of being on board a traditional galleon. We also turned a table base in the lathe to hold a bronze gear wheel from the decommissioned HMS Cornwall and Glass top.
