House Heads

Berry Place designed and created three wearable model buildings, including a Commuter Belt Bolt Hole, an Urban Apartment Block and a Cross Rail Crash Pad, as part of an advertising campaign for PropertyPartner.co, a property crowdfunding platform.

The models, finished in just five days, were designed to fit comfortably on the actors’ heads and were built upon a modified cycle helmet. Foam-core and scale plastic sheeting for the bricks and tiles were used to keep the buildings as lightweight as possible.


One of the models featured interior lighting and another was rigged to have the guttering fall and re-set for repeat takes.

Model Making in Demand

 

New Blades, the graduate recruitment fair for the model making industry, draws final year students from the University of Hertfordshire, Arts University Bournemouth, University of Bolton, University for the Creative Arts and City of Glasgow College. It provides a great opportunity for graduates to showcase final year projects to industry, with the aim of securing work and placements across multiple facets of industry - including design, production, film, arts and advertising.
This year, according to Paul Johnson, principal lecturer & course leader at Arts University Bournemouth, graduates who exhibited at New Blades have all since found work, with many commencing employment the Monday immediately following the show. He went on to say "students [from the Arts University Bournemouth] were being offered jobs over the phone without interviews!"
Despite the fact that current technology, such as realistic digital rendering and 3D printing can potentially offer alternative solutions to physical models, David Austen, Managing Director at Berry Place commented “it’s safe to say model making is in demand”.

Bacardi TANG™

As part of a promotional launch for Bacardi TANG™, a revolutionary new green tea-based spirit, Berry Place collaborated with The Brand Union to design and produce over 200 branded lead crystal drinking glasses.
Picked from our network of trusted suppliers, Berry Place worked closely with one of the few remaining hand-made lead crystal manufacturers in the UK to produce the bespoke glasses. Leaf patterns were engraved around the sides, conveying the drink’s green tea origins, with the Bacardi TANG™ logo prominently displayed at the base.
Produced in France and positioned towards the Chinese market, the limited-edition spirit derives from the Tang dynasty, representing a time of great accomplishment and innovation for China.

MASS OF TIME

"Mass of Time,” is a beautiful and original conceptual instrument that lets you ‘touch’ and ‘feel’ time as solid matter.
Commissioned by Clarks and The Halo Trust, designed by Kacper Hamilton Studio and produced by Berry Place, the innovative and unusual “Mass of Time” timepiece has recently finished a global tour of exhibitions (Frieze NY, Design Shanghai and Milan’s Salone del Mobile), with all proceeds from its upcoming auction going to The Halo Trust charity, a UK-based organisation committed to removing "explosive remnants of war” (unexploded ordnance) from communities around the world.
"Mass of Time" weighs predefined periods of time using a set of scales and a sand timer. Each machined aluminium weight allows one to measure three, five or ten minutes. The process starts with a chosen weight/time placed on one side of the scales, the timer is then set in motion by turning the stopcock, allowing the sand to flow into the brass bowl. When the needle is balanced, the designated time has elapsed.
The piece comes presented in a custom made flight case, divided into neatly separated components.
