As part of Philips new urban headphones campaign, ‘You Need To Hear This’, pub goers across east London got a chance to listen to trending music curated specifically for the neighbourhood they were in just by plugging their headphones into bespoke tables.
Three tables were made featuring hand illustrated typography and iconography inspired by its neighbourhood – all prompting people to plug their headphones directly into the table (Philips headphones were provided by the bar). Alison Carmichael and I worked together to create the ‘Hackney’ table with surfaces entirely handmade using three types of wood: American oak, fumed oak and maple, using a range of techniques including marquetry, laser etching, wood burning and hand distressing.
