Greenwich awning at House of Hackney

Greenwich awnings in Shoreditch

16 Dec 2017

Here is another amazing example by our Graphics Department utilizing  the unique RAGS system of design application. In this case the amazingly complex fern design has been applied to the awning cover of one of our Greenwich awnings at The House of Hackney located in Shoreditch. The Greenwich awning is a modern slant on  traditional look with the advantage that the awning can be operated either manually via a gearbox or electrically using wireless remote controls. House of Hackney  was opened in 2013, this flagship store is bedecked in the deliberately over the top juxtapositions of print-on-print-on-print that have made the brand's name. All of House of Hackney's stunning print collections are here, even on this amazing awning. Note especially the awning has four arms to ensure stability over a very long profile length

House of Hackney  was Opened in 2013; upstairs you will find rolls of paper, fabric, trays, mugs, fashion and collaborative designs with brands including Puma and William Morris. Downstairs you'll find furniture - with generously proportioned sofas and plump armchairs in more-is-more combinations of print and texture. Wherever possible products are made in England, and as far as possible, here in London.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Shoreditch was a centre of entertainment to rival the West End and boasted many theatres and music halls, unfortunately these are now just a memory. For those with another type of memory you might recall the  singing game sung in the playground all about the church bells of London "Oranges and Lemons". If you do you will also remember the sinister rhyme end which gave children an excited shiver as they sang and they were called "out" of the game.:

"When will you pay me?

       Say the bells of Old Bailey.

When I grow rich,

       Say the bells of Shoreditch.

Pray when will that be?

       Say the bells of Stepney.

I am sure I don't know,

       Says the great bell of Bow.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed,

      AND HERE COME THE CHOPPER TO CHOP OFF YOUR HEAD!"
