Just Our Type

Posted on Mar 3, 2014 by

Type is tucked away down Sclater Street in London’s Shoreditch, just a stone’s throw from the trendy BOXPARK pop up mall. Slightly hidden away, it’s is a destination for those “in the know” – and we’re keen to share the details with you all. Dotted throughout this delightful design den, you’ll find vintage typewriters neighbouring hand-printed artworks and fantastic bespoke items of furniture, customised pieces and reworked goods. A wonderful eclectic and eccentric collection.

This colourful conversion of a vintage industrial wooden workbench caught our eyes, its wooden worktop inlaid with a fluorescent perspex panel and complemented by brightly coloured perspex vice plates and casters. Sadly, it’s already been snapped up by a homeowner with a keen eye for design – but keep your eye on the Type site for other amazing designs.

And we loved this charming desk or table lamp, which has given new life and purpose to a vintage gt bellow camera.

This particular typewriter, a vintage Imperial, is no longer available but Type stock a wonderful selection of other antique and period typewriters. Restoring and repairing typewriters runs in the owners’ family – hence the name of course – and it’s a tradition they’re keen to continue. In fact, you can commission Type to hand-type a letter to a friend or loved one, something which will make lovely gift.
