Art Car Boot Fair 2009

We made 100 flocked magnetic fridge frames for the famous Art Car Boot Fair that took place on Brick Lane, London last Sunday. In a range of bright summer colours, the frames literally flew off our van!

An opportunity for artists and arts businesses to step away from their normal practice, the Art Car Boot Fair is in its fifth year. This year saw artists such as Peter Blake, Bob & Roberta Smith and Gavin Turk peddle their wares at bargain prices to the 6,500 visitors.

Boxing Gloves

We are often asked to frame objects and have designed many bespoke presentation solutions over the years. As well as David Beckham's collection of football shirts and boots, we've also framed Elvis's first guitar. Most recently we designed display cases for two full length vintage kimonos.

The image here shows a display case designed to present a pair of Lonsdale boxing gloves. To achieve a classic, stylish look, its important to keep the presentation simple
and use high quality materials and finishes.

Gloss finish frames

The high gloss finish on these frames has been achieved using eco friendly water based paints in a range of bright, almost neon colours. A deep museum standard mount in dark grey helps to tone down the overall effect, resulting in a stylish modern way to present classic Victorian medical imagery.

Classic black and white imagery

This is a classic iconic image - a Getty Images silver gelatin print of racing driver Jackie Stewart, presented in a hand made frame with a black satin finish.

One of the projects we're working on at the moment is a large photography collection of British racing drivers. The collector contacted us after seeing our frames in Ralph Lauren Bond Street. More info to come soon as the collection will be unveiled in a vintage racing car showroom...

If you click on the image you can see more detail of the lovely thick cotton board mount which adds a touch of luxury.
