Off to one of my favourite places in London today, somewhere I find constantly inspiring and always a source of joy, the wonderful RETROUVIUS.  Read more about them here  As well as their involvement with the V&A for London Design Festival this year,  they have also created an exhibition  at their showroom in Kensal Green with a project called Off The Floor.....

Two RCA graduates were given the remit of interpreting three salvaged materials; fossilised limestone, meranti parquet and oak drawers.  The boys, Fabien Cappello and Daniel Heath, have produced some wonderful ideas, and all in keeping with the Retrouvius methodology and approach to design.  Lovely.

Fabien Cappello's work made from meranti parquet overlay...

Daniel Heath's incredible wall piece created out of oak drawer bottoms, laser cut to produce beautifully delicate imagery.  Loved this - a lot.

And some great fabric by Dan as well....
