Chewton Glen is a 5 star privately owned Country House Hotel and Spa on the fringe of the New Forest. They are quintessentially English and exude luxury in every area of their business, sourcing the finest quality pieces for their guests and staff. Chewton Glen are local to us and we have worked with them on a number of occasions, producing hotel keyrings and nail polish stands for their spa in the past.
How we helped
Having worked with us previously, Chewton Glen got in touch with us about making some solid oak trophies for an internal staff awards ceremony. They wanted high quality bespoke pieces, in line with their branding, and being such a prestigious venue, we knew the finished item needed to be of the highest quality.
We wanted to capture aspects of the brand logo in the design and keep an organic feel. There was a fairly short lead time for the project meaning there was little time to produce samples, so in this instance we created visual mock ups which we presented to the team at Chewton Glen. They were happy to proceed with the project, trusting our expertise in design and production.
We were able to source some reclaimed solid oak from a larger joinery with FSC certification, which is always our preferred practice in terms of sustainability. The trophies were made using our inhouse CNC machine which allows us to cut 3D profiles and intricate shapes – in this instance, the ‘CG’ and leaf element from Chewton Glen’s logo. We have developed a range of methods to incorporate logos in our client projects, from laser engraving, full colour UV printing, CNC work and filling areas with paints, inlay materials and colours.
Once the trophies had been cut we created a jig which enabled us to laser engrave the text, including winners’ names and award details. We opted to laser engrave directly onto the trophies in this instance rather than a more traditional plaque as we felt the contrast of the engraving worked beautifully on the wood and was in keeping with the overall design.
Chewton Glen were very pleased with the result and we have since worked with their sister hotel to produce similar items.
