Made up of Matthew Galvin (designer) and Andrew Galvin (joiner) the brothers came together just over two years ago after building on their father’s 61 years of joinery and cabinet making experience. Working to the brief of Form & Function, Galvin Brothers have created a collection, which sees them working beyond their traditional skillset of furniture making. Inspired by how Jameson makes its whiskey, and by looking carefully at the way in which people consume it, they have created a space that is designed to enhance the drinking experience.
The Whiskey Den provokes different ways for drinks to be served with a range of furniture with different functions – some merely for seating, some for the presentation of cocktails and others to create a social enclose and convivial space. Copper pots are also an integral part of the distillation process of Jameson and have inspired part of the design through beautiful copper vessels and ice buckets.
The Whiskey Drinking Collection furniture range that features in the den are individually handcrafted and made from solid sustainable European Oak. The range can be purchased online with prices starting at the lower end for hand spun copper vessels to higher priced pieces such as the Drinker’s End Table, which stores everything you need to make the perfect whiskey cocktail.
Matthew Galvin, designer at Galvin Brothers commented: “After our visit to the Jameson distillery, we wanted to create a space that reflected the true quality, craft and passion that is put into the whiskey making process. It made sense for us to use copper and wood, which are key materials involved in the Jameson distillery process but to also create a distinct, intimate, sociable and functional space for whiskey to be enjoyed in.
“The brief of Form and Function really echoes our principals of designing furniture that looks good but also has a purpose – the ‘how’ of the furniture is just as important as the why.
“Whether it’s an after work drink with mates or a date, we hope that everyone enjoys the space and people even have the chance to bring a little bit of the drinking experience into their own home, with a limited edition of the furniture range on sale from today.”
The collaboration is part of The Jameson Works series which recognises and shares the stories behind real ‘modern makers,’ who are prepared to innovate and challenge their skillsets, and who are passionate about telling the story of the process along the way. The Jameson Works is not just about what you make but how you make it, and aims to spread the knowledge of how great craftsmen work today.
