Halstock & Paul Spencer


Following a collaborative design and manufacture process we are pleased to confirm that we have filed our application for Guild Mark on this beautiful piece. Following its time at The Gallery, 99 Mount St, Mayfair, W1 between 1st June – 6th July there has been much interest and appreciation for this piece.

Created to merge contemporary stone carving and traditional cabinet making, using classic materials in new ways. The cabinet has been designed as a fun extravagant showpiece of style and opulence, layered with surprises to delight and entertain. The concept of backlighting the alabaster and the internal ‘bleachedburr madrona’ was intended to maximise the impact of the piece and showcase the materials unique aesthetic qualities.

Created by seamlessly integrating both design and engineering, sketches, CAD and above all teamwork. Notice that the interior working area where cocktails will be mixed is set at pub bar height whilst not compromising the square alabaster door tiles on the exterior, in this cabinet form does indeed follow function.
