Trespass Keswick Store Case Study

Keswick is a market town in the north of the Lake District, surrounded by mountains, amazing scenery and of course the lakes. It’s the ideal place for adventurers, hikers, and people looking for an escape, which makes it the ideal location for a Trespass store, featuring their DLX (Designed for Life in Extremes) range and activewear, offering everything passing adventurers would need on their travels.

Having worked with Trespass for a number of years and supporting their monumental growth, the team at Ripple were called upon to manufacture a range of dynamic new look furniture and fixtures for the Keswick store, as part of their new store format roll out, embracing their brand and the great outdoors.

Alchemy Infuzions Pop-Up Shop

It’s great to see so many brands getting back to focusing on their retail space. We are currently working with some exciting clients who are looking to the future and adapting their physical environments to provide engaging customer experiences.

One of our newest customers, Alchemy are taking their first steps into the retail world with their first pop-up shop, currently located at Houndshill Shopping Centre in Blackpool. Alchemy’s brief was to create a premium finished solution with countertop space to showcase their feature products, lockable storage space to hold stock as well as being easy to set-up and dismantle to move to different shopping centres whilst testing locations and audiences.

We also integrated two freestanding digital screens featuring videos of their products, the eye-catching large format screens are a great way to engage and inspire potential customers.

Historic Environment Scotland Case Study

The Engine Shed is Scotland’s building conservation centre. Created and managed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES), it promotes engagement with traditional buildings and educates people about the skills and materials required to build, conserve and maintain them. The beautifully restored, redundant MOD railway building (engine shed) was refurbished in 2019 with 2 new wings added and Ripple was asked to design, manufacture and install their retail area; a unique project with a contemporary reflection of the industrial era complimenting the outstanding conservation efforts of the existing building. Aside from the manufacturing and installation of this project, a great deal of emphasis was put on the design for the manufacturing process. Our Technical Design team took the approved concepts from the architects and agencies involved and worked hard to realise exactly how the products could be manufactured, considering materials such as Cold Rolled Blackened Steel (CR4) with lacquered finish to offer an industrial look and feel. These expertly finalised designs then headed into our in-house manufacturing facility where the design team continued their involvement to oversee the detailed production and on-site installation.

Trespass Windsor Store Case Study

Trespass is a brand where adventure comes first, they constantly push the boundaries of innovation and have brought numerous ‘firsts’ to market including Tres-Tex, Tres-Shield and Tres-Tex 3 layer fabric. The brand now has over 300 stores worldwide and are constantly expanding, at pace, with over 100 of those stores opening in the last couple of years.

Having worked with Trespass for a number of years and supporting their monumental growth, when the brand opened a new flagship store in Windsor, the team at Ripple were called upon to manufacture a range of dynamic new look furniture and fixtures, embracing their brand and the great outdoors.

This evolution of their in-store design and brand is part of a larger scale roll out to their other premier retail locations across the country.
Using a visual combination of multi-faceted oak veneer and hard-wearing textured steel, the new look really brings to life the organic and outdoorsy feel that the team at Trespass were looking to achieve.

The technical specifications and manufacturing processes on this project were a great challenge for our designers and facility, we managed the full process from design to manufacture and successfully delivered the installations on time and within budget. We really look forward to working with the team at Trespass once again to continue the roll-out.

Parkside Design Studio Project

We’ve been working with Parkside for a number of years now, and recently posted about the London design studio that we worked on in 2019. Well, we’ve been working hard over the last couple of months with their internal teams to complete their head office design studio, based in Leicester.

The brief focused on creating an open plan, industrial-style space to showcase their large format tile samples along with a huge variety of different textures and colours, the studio features thousands of premium tile samples, but it has been designed in a way where it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Ripple was commissioned to design, manufacture and install the majority of the tile display units that you see here in keeping with the design and style of the rest of the fit-out, we worked closely with the internal design teams at Parkside along with a number of other contractors and studios, to help bring the project together perfectly.

Parkside has created full 360-degree internal tours of their studios that you can browse on their website, this includes both the recent Leicester projects and our last Clerkenwell job, have a browse in the following link.
