East London designer Roger Arquer has made a bench out of materials he salvaged from his local hardware shop before it closed down, which he is contributing to the Stepney Green Design Collection curated by Dezeen. All of the materials in the bench, from the wood to the screws and even the sandpaper Arquer used to make it, are from General Woodwork Supplies, a hardware shop near Dezeen's office in Stoke Newington that closed down this year after over 60 years of trading. The seat of the bench is made from a plank of English chestnut that Arquer found in the back of the shop, while the 12 beech legs that are screwed in to it are replacement parts for old 1950s coffee tables.


Talking about his affection for the store and the concept behind the project, Arquer told Dezeen "General Woodworks has been a reference hardware shop for many makers based in the creative hub of East London. To me Roger’s bench is a lovely, meaningful evocation of General Woodwork Supplies and its design reflects an ad-hoc, somewhat mad treasure trove of a shop that is very much missed. It had been continuously trading since 1946 and was a really amazing place that the local creative community relied upon for materials and expertise.


How many beautiful items have been made from items bought solely from this store… to be summed up by this!
