Christmas will arrive at Boots the Chemists this week, in the shape of in-store decorations by Michael Nash Associates. Holographic materials are used to enhance the effect. As many as 30 000 angels and 15 000 snowflakes will be used across the chain’s 1364 stores.
Sink manufacturer Carron Phoenix’s investment in tooling has paid off with the production of its Precision model. Designed by Gerrard & Medd in Edinburgh, the Precision sports the UK’s first one and a half bowl sink pressed in one piece. It took 18 months to develop, says consultancy principal David Gerrard. ‘It gives a quality product which they can produce extremely competitively,’ he adds.
