Designer and maker Rupert Blanchard creates bespoke furniture from discarded drawers, secondhand pieces and scrap material, but is adamant that his work should not be considered part of the upcycling trend. In 2011 Blanchard won ‘Best Product Design’ at The British Design Awards, and during London Design Festival he opened up his East London studio as part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle. Blanchard takes Crane.tv on a day out to visit some of his favourite local haunts around Brick Lane and Bethnal Green including a welder, a junkshop and a scrapyard.
