Polystyrene contemporary sofaPolystyrene contemporary sofa and table
This polystyrene sofa and table (aquatable) were part of a contemporary furniture collection and was made for a London based furniture manufacturer. They were launching a brand new furniture range where each piece was designed, manufactured and built in Britain and they asked Bakers to produce a polystyrene model of the sofa and table. The end use was for the client to take fibre glass moulds from the polystyrene models to make the production items.

A polystyrene boat hull made for a boat yard
A polystyrene boat hull is far quicker and more cost effective for both low and high volumes than the traditional method of hand making a wooden buck (boat hull). The polystyrene material is also significantly cheaper than typical model boards.
Polystyrene boat deckIn this project, after Bakers Patterns completed the polystyrene boat hull and machined the boat deck, the boat yard then coated the hull with a epoxy resin which they hand finished to a smooth surface, they could then take a fibre glass mould to enable finished boats to be produced.
After the Naval Architects have finished their design stage, Bakers Patterns can organise CAD where required prior to producing the polystyrene model.
