This week SCP founder, Sheridan Coakley, visited New York for NYCxDESIGN, which is New York City’s official citywide celebration of design. Spanning all disciplines of design, the festival creates a collaborative platform and elevates established and emerging design practices.
SCP stockist, The Future Perfect presented an installation entitled ‘GALLERY’ that included work from Piet Hein Eek, Charles de Lisle, Michael Anastassiades, Lindsey Adelman, Bec Brittain, Jason Miller, Fort Standard, Chen Chen and Kai Williams, Rachel Whiteread for SCP and Jasper Morrison for SCP.
Brooklyn-based lighting manufacturer Roll & Hill debuted their stunning new collection of lights at this year’s shows in Milan and in New York. Their new 2014 collection includes five new product lines plus new pieces by Lindsey Adelman, Jason Miller, and Rosie Li. It’s their largest collection of new work to date and they revealed it in Midtown Manhattan last weekend.
SCP designer, Bec Brittain presented a special collaboration with Hilda Hellström at the US design store, Matter.
Hellström also presented new works from her ongoing Sedimentation series alongside Karl Zahn who showed a fresh body of work called Momentum.
Meanwhile at ICFF Fort Standard presented a new collection of faceted lighting.
Whilst in New York, Sheridan visited the New York home and studio of the late American artist Donald Judd, which is now open to the public following a three-year restoration.
The Met Museum hosts an exhibition that examines the career of the legendary twentieth-century Anglo-American couturier Charles James (1906–1978).
Sheridan finished off his trip with a visit to The Merchants House on 4th St and Paula Rubenstein on Bond St; his favourite second hand shop.
