This week we had a bit of time on our hands so we started working on a custom sandwich board for the shop. We bought a couple of nice wide boards and began to burn them a la Terunobu Fujimori.
The next step we sealed the board with a very matte polyurethane called Bona Traffic. This will keep the charcoal from rubbing off onto your hands.
We found some really nice copper hinges to match our copper wall light by Poul Henningsen.
Here it is drying out in the sun.
We commissioned Melinda Josie to create the illustration for the sandwich board and a matching version for our window.
Here it is sitting outside doing its job.
Here is the logo in the front window, it used to read “Pure Scandinavian” but with the amount of Japanese and Canadian influence I think this is more appropriate.
