SLACKLANDS
A GUIDE TO RURAL CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE
9 MAY – 1 JUNE

MAY 9, 2014

The first book from ARCA, Archive for Rural Contemporary Architecture, SLACKLANDS by Corinna Dean challenges conventional aesthetics by inviting the reader to take a journey to uncompromising rural structures, to contemplate their uneasy existence and reflect on how these buildings have impacted on the surrounding natural environment.

‘Parts of East Anglia are rich in bunkers, pillboxes and observation posts, as well as airfields and coastal defences. Some might scorn the word ‘rich’, dismiss them as concrete eyesores and wish they’d go away. Should we care if they disappear? I think we should and for at least two reasons; cultural and aesthetic.

First, these relics and the many similar ones to be found around the country, tell us directly about our history. Second, they often weather to take on a mysterious beauty of their own and become an intrinsic part of our land and seascapes, which are all the richer for them’         – Margaret Howell

ARCA, seeks to build awareness around an alternative rural idyll by drawing into the public consciousness crucial buildings of the twentieth century in rural contexts. arca-projects.com

Exhibition designed by Ben Mclaughlin and Corinna Dean, featuring selected images from the book at our Wigmore Street shop from 9 May – 1 June

The book is available exclusively in our shops and online until 1 June.

KAIKADO
CHAZUTSU TEA CADDIES

SEPTEMBER 25, 2013

Kaikado is the oldest maker of handmade tin tea caddies in the world. The first generation began producing their innovative Chazutsu caddies in 1875 using sheets of tin specially imported from Cornwall. Today the fifth and sixth generations, Seiji and his son Takahiro Yagi work with two other craftsmen in their Kyoto workshop to produce caddies in tin, brass, copper and silver.

Each caddy has two layers; an inner layer of tin and an outer layer of tin or copper. The double wall of metal is perfect for storage, keeping the tins completely airtight and the contents dry. Ideal for storing tea leaves, coffee beans and herbs and spices. With daily use the outer metal layer will change in tone developing a unique patina; colour changes in copper will be noticed in two to three months and over three to five years for tin.

There are more than 130 highly skilled processes in the production of each meticulously crafted Chazutsu. The special airtight feature has remained unchanged for over a century, ensuring that the joint of the lid and body line up and the lid descends to the exact level in one continuous silent motion expelling air from the caddy.

The Chazutsu tea caddies are available to buy from our Wigmore Street shop
