The Arrangement of Furniture in a Museum

To celebrate 30 years, the Design Museum, London will be staging an exhibition of SCP design objects composed by Michael Marriott. The show, entitled The Arrangement of Furniture in a Museum will start on the 24th May and will feature a range of SCP prototypes, originals, re-issues and new products, each of which is displayed on top of a piece of specially sourced non-SCP furniture. The individual arrangements are like small design conversations, around form, material and texture. The show will explore the cultural richness that has formed the backbone of SCP for the last 30 years, focusing attention on product typologies, on relationships between things and on the layers in between.

The exhibition will be the first opportunity to preview products in the new SCP Classics collection. We have chosen the most coveted products from the archive and have invited the original designers to update them, or alternatively leave them unchanged, depending on developments in materials and manufacturing techniques. The result is a collection of design that is at once modern, timeless and full of individuality.
