Craftwood and Big Brother
“When the Big Brother team approached Craftwood with regard to the possible supply of a huge 3.7 metre long booth for this years’ Big Brother House, I have to admit, I thought it must be a prank call!”, commented Heather Baskerville, Sales Director at Craftwood.
Upon discussion with Gemma Jones, Art Director at Big Brother, it was clear that this was for real and Big Brother really was watching! Gemma explained the show requirements, and that they were looking for a really focal piece of seating to be used in the dining area of The House. Some initial drawings were worked up by Craftwood for approval and were then given to the Design and Build team for them to create the specially built “well” that the booth was to fit into.
The 3.7 metre long booth was manufactured by Craftwood with a striking Fluted back in faux leather supplied by Agua Fabrics….their Taurus Latte. The outside backs and plinths were clad in oak veneered MDF to finish the items. As we are sure you will agree, the finished installation looks stunning, and creates a very bold focal point that is both practical and attractive.
It was pleasure working with the Big Brother team, and we wish this summer’s show and contestants the very best of luck!!
