HRBR
Custom-Lane-x-Studio-Brae-header

HRBR is a custom designed and built retail display installed in the reception of the Custom Lane gallery space and café in Leith. The project’s title references its setting in Edinburgh’s historic harbour district. A modular approach, based on the multiplication of standard cabinet sizes, allows for easy reconfiguration of the display units. A system of movable shelves and trays creates a continuous play of transparency, while the solidity and geometry of the oak storage brings structural stability and visual balance to the freestanding object. Reflective, satin-brass frames contrast beautifully with the matte, naturally ebonised oak, helping to emphasise HRBR’s timeless, minimal aesthetic.

HRBR was developed and fabricated in collaboration with Edinburgh-based maker and designer, Daniel Brophy. It showcases a curated programme of products, artworks and exhibits produced by partners including retailers, designers and makers working in a variety of media.
