PROJECT ROLLS-ROYCE

PRESS RELEASE
Issued: 12 December 2016

Kensington Palace, London: A Legacy of Luxury book launch

London, UK, 9 December 2016 – As one of the world’s most prestigious car clubs, the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club (RREC) has thousands of devoted members around the globe. Established in 1957, the club is celebrating its diamond jubilee over the coming year and, to mark this milestone, it launched a new publication entitled A Legacy of Luxury – Celebrating the RREC’s Diamond Jubilee at the royal residence of Kensington Palace in London on Friday 9 December. The event was attended by more than 500 guests, including Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners and collectors
and an array of VIPs.

Produced by leading London publisher St James’s House and written by an editorial team of experts, aficionados and tastemakers, the beautifully designed, 444-page hardback publication spotlights Rolls-Royce motor cars past and present, and delves into the stories and personalities that make the marque “the best car in the world”.

In keeping with the launch’s refined setting, a collection of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars were on display at the Kensington Palace event. In addition, to resonate with the book’s theme of luxury a carefully curated selection of high-end brands were present, enabling guests to immerse themselves in a world of luxurious tastes, products and experiences.

Richard Freed, Director of publisher St James’s House, said: “What better way to launch this wonderful book than with a celebration of the finer things in life? It was truly an event to remember.”

The launch event took place on 9 December between 5pm and 8pm at Kensington Palace in London.

We now look forward to the book launch at Kensington Palace in December and exhibiting at the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club Diamond Jubilee Celebrations at Burghley House in June 2017.

If you would like to see the design process, please see below.


The design stage is underway and we have a tight deadline of September to have the bed produced and photographed ready for the publication in the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club (RREC) hand-made, beautifully illustrated 400-page book.

The thought process for this piece of furniture is a totally different animal to our usual design process. The engineering, aesthetic beauty to which we have to convey this Rolls-Royce bed is paramount.  The skill and the craftsmanship of the original Rolls- Royce designers and craftsmen have to be maintained. Putting myself into the shoes of such a passionate team is a big responsibility. Every last detail has to be thought out to attain my final objective.

Starting the process from the ground up concentrating on the finest of detail, amending and evolving until satisfaction is achieved. Merging the world of high-class automotive design into furniture design will be a joy. Every last detail scrutinized until perfect.

A Cautionary tale

We were recently involved in an IP copyright issue with another company who took it upon themselves to copy and reproduce our designs.

As clearly shown on our website we have membership with access to IP protection with ACID (Anti Copying in Design), an organisation accessing specialist IP Lawyers and supporting services in these cases.

We are pleased to report that this company was immediately stopped from producing our designs and compensation sought for loss of earnings and legal costs.
The company also had to supply us with all sales made, along with names and addresses of the customers, so we may contact them directly informing them that they are in possession of a counterfeit item. 

At Fun Furniture Collection we will not hesitate to use these legal services if and when required to protect our designs. Our team regularly monitors the Internet to make sure no copyright infringements of our designs are occurring.

We would like to thank ACID for their swift response and assistance to a satisfactory outcome.

Article from thebuisnessdesk.com

CREATIVE firms in Stoke-on-Trent will showcase their wares to The Prince of Wales today as part of a focus on the city’s efforts to boost its overseas sales volumes.

The Prince will meet six SMEs during a visit to Middleport Pottery in Burslem. The pottery is the beneficiary of £8.7m of regeneration funding and the money has been used to redevelop the grade II listed building to create workspace for local creative businesses.

It is also the venue of a new visitor attraction telling the story of the British ceramics industry. The regeneration project, funded through the Regional Growth Fund and other sources, is the brainchild of the Prince’s Regeneration Trust.

The firms being showcased to the Prince are all beneficiaries of help and support from UK Trade and Investment.

Hudsons of England has been manufacturing quality fine bone china on the same site since 1875, using traditional techniques. The recent revival of bone china manufactured in England has given the firm the opportunity to develop exports overseas and late last year it agreed a deal with Annvita English Tea Group of Shanghai - an expanding group which currently has 45 English teahouses in many of the major cities in China. With the help of UKTI Hudsons visited China and attended trade exhibitions in Russia and recently Japan. Export turnover has now increased to over 40% of total business.

Another firm being showcased is Scabetti, a contemporary design–led, lighting sculpture company receiving commissions from across the globe commercially and privately. It received start-up funding from the Prince’s Trust.

Other firms are textile designer Jan Constantine and textile manufacturer, The Gaddum Group. Fun Furniture Collection is a collection of childrens’ bedroom furniture inspired by heritage vehicles and designs. The company designs and makes each piece from its city-based studio and workshop. The eclectic range includes camper van bunk beds and petrol pump storage units. The firm is looking to expand into new markets in Europe and the USA.

The last firm is Ooh-Ar Augmented reality solutions (trading as Davis Smith Press Ltd). It provides augmented reality solutions to a wide range of customers from small companies to international market leaders.

The cutting edge technology superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view. One local project is a canal side heritage trail – in conjunction with the Prince's Charities – linking the Middleport Pottery site with Burslem town centre.

The Prince's visit to Middleport will also mark the completion of the £9m restoration project.

A range of other businesses based in North Staffordshire are also benefiting from the growing success story, from couriers and freight handlers to seamstress services.

Mark, an industrial designer by trade, said: "We're big believers in keeping it British and keeping it local, putting something back into the community.

"Thanks to our work with UKTI, we've met lots more local companies and they've become friends. We help each other out when we can and it's good to be able to talk to others who have been through the same process when it comes to building the export side of the business.

"Our main focus is on detail and quality – we are targeting the high end market. And while the majority of our customers are in the UK, we are already seeing orders from as far afield as the U.S."

Fun Furniture Collection was inspired by a trip to a classic vehicle show, when the idea for making a bed in the shape of an AEC Tipper popped into Mark's head as he viewed the exhibits.

 


Mark was working at Model and Scenic Solutions at the time, and as the design and build company had both the equipment and the skills he was looking for, it was the perfect choice for a manufacturing partner.

Llinos said: "We make sure that every design is functional – I'm always the one checking whether mum can still make the bed easily.

"And customer service is extremely important to us. Mark writes the assembly manuals and every customer can ring us direct, to the point where we will talk them through the steps if needs be.

"We even supply little pots of touch-up paint for the painted furniture, so they don't have to worry about the children scuffing it as they play."

Mark added: "These are investment pieces and getting the detail right is something I am very particular about.

"They are high quality and made to last so they can be passed down the family."

Now the business has a range of about 30 products, with a couple of new designs in the pipeline, as well as accepting commissions.

It is a regular exhibitor at trade shows and fairs, with products available through a number of specialist retail sites as well as direct from Mark and Llinos, who are also looking at recruiting distributors to support its overseas sales.
