The BRIX has landed – redefining a new era of retail display

WBC-Brix-2126x330

Introducing BRIX – the entirely modular retail display system that’s offering high street stores, pop-ups, market stall holders, and even exhibition designers, a more flexible merchandising solution than previously available on the market.

We like to think of it as a retailer’s dream. The BRIX modular display system comprises of just 4 basic components. With them, you can build a small simple merchandised display or undergo a complete retail shelving fit out. BRIX is simple to build and doesn’t require tools to put together. Imagine endless configurations with the ability to construct your own unique retail shelving, central floor display or merchandising hot spot, as and when space or seasonality demands.

And BRIX can move with you: all elements easily re-located, interchangeable and mobile. Start small with just one or two units, and then expand by ordering more BRIX. And as your business grows so too can your collection of BRIX, simply add some more.

That’s the basics, but keep reading to find out the story behind the BRIX…

Introducing Portaglas!

Portaglas – the amazing new storage & catering crate for glasses

We can almost hear you thinking – “Amazing? Really?? A glass storage box?!”

Well we could give it other adjectives like practical and efficient, before consigning it to history as just another functional box for storing things. But the truth is, if you’re in the catering, events and hospitality business, or a wine retailer offering a glass hire service, you’ll appreciate that it’s little functional boxes like this that can literally save your life. Ok not literally, but certainly and utterly metaphorically speaking, it probably could.

So we’d like to introduce you to the arguably amazing and certainly new Portaglas storage box for glassware and bottles and breakables. Here’s what’s so great about it.

If you missed our stand, here is a list of the top 10 products on display that got people talking.

We can’t tell you the amount of times we’ve turned up to a trade show or exhibition with our van packed to the rafters, stand in place and ready to go – and what do we always forget?

Take a look at these pictures of us using it like one of those exercise hand grip things….

Retail shelving & display

Retail shelving & display fixtures born & bred in Brixton

Merchandising, shop fittings, retail display, display cabinets

Something slightly different is happening when it comes to the new Kingsley Range of retail shelving, shop fittings and merchandising stands. A lot different as it happens. Without putting too fine a point on it, a lot of the generic retail shelving we see up and down the high street has about as much charisma as an aeroplane salad. It’s all function over style, and it’s not even particularly cheap. But what if you could have modular shop fittings that are both stylish and functional? With the new Kinglsey range of retail display fixtures and fittings you’re purchasing signature pieces of hand-crafted furniture that you’re just as likely to want in your own home as much as your store. You could even sell them as product, safe in the knowledge you can always buy another piece from stock.

The Kingsley range of visual merchandising units are made from reclaimed floor boards, industrial metal and antique finished wood – all of which from a design perspective, is not just currently on trend, but is right up our street. Literally! Because they’re made in our back yard; each and every unit, right here in Brixton, London, England, UK. We stress the point because we have a thing about pretty much anything locally produced. It’s not always possible, but when it is; shout about it loudly we say. The merchandising range is mobile and modular, so you can create your own unique retail shelving combinations to fit your own unique spaces. And it’s a labour of love; retail furniture hand-crafted by artisan furniture makers instead of rushed off an assembly line. So, without further ado, here is The Kingsley and the Kingsley X range – available now from stock.
