At this year’s Salone del Mobile Milano, which ran from April 12 – 17, SCP presented new products for 2016, including new furniture designs from Matthew Hilton, Faudet-Harrison, Reiko Kaneko, Peter Marigold, Michael Marriott, Oscar Coakley and Donna Wilson, alongside an entirely new textile collection by Hannah Waldron.
Products being launched for the first time included free-standing wooden shelves and an elegant, fold-down table by Matthew Hilton plus Reiko Kaneko’s first foray into furniture design: an upholstered powder-coated steel lounge chair with enduring appeal.
Artist and designer, Hannah Waldron also collaborated with SCP to develop a new textile collection that utilised the time-honoured double cloth weaving technique; while Peter Marigold added to his popular Galvanized shelves collection, which are made from laser-cut hot dip galvanised steel and hand-finished by the designer using hydrochloric acid to create a camouflage effect.

A playful response to the problem of occasional seating, Donna Wilson’s pouffes in new knitted Stitch fabrics come in three shapes. The knitted pattern, a new signature for the designer, is reminiscent of traditional Northern European folk designs, in a natural muted colour palette of grey, blue and rust.’ Soft and shapely the pouffe collection is also available in Nos Da, Field Day, Zig Zag, Braid fabric. Made in the UK.
A lounge chair that has a steel frame, walnut arm rests, an upholstered back rest and a feather seat cushion on an upholstered pad. The design sits low to the floor, with a small footprint, yet has noticeably generous proportions. The frame is made from both tubular and solid steel and has a gentle curving detail between the back and arm rests. A small amount of flex in the back of the frame adds to comfort. Various upholstery and powder coat finishes available. Made in the UK.
An elegant dining table that has a top with fold-down flaps on either side. Originally created in 1991, this design takes inspiration from Shaker furniture. The tabletop has boat-like curves on either side, while each leg slightly splays outwards. A certain slimness, fine details and high-quality wood workmanship give Auberon a strong visual stature. It is available in walnut or oak. Made in the EU.
A collection of designs made from laser-cut hot dip galvanised steel. Large, at an industrial kind of scale, they are constructed with oversized nuts and bolts. Each shelf has been hand finished by Marigold, utilising hydrochloric acid to strip back some of the zinc, creating a mottled finish, almost like camouflage. Made in the UK.
A marble topped side table with a checker plate steel base and a central table stem. Made with Italian Carrara marble, the top has slightly chamfered edges, softening the look and feel of the design. Available in a pink or grey powder coated finish. Made in the UK.
A free standing library shelving unit of good style and line. Made from solid oak or walnut, it is available in three sizes that can be used in any number of combinations. It works equally well as a room divider or against a wall. Trieste is a design of real refinement . It has a faceted wooden frame, inlaid shelves and felt feet to protect floor. Available in oak or walnut. Made in the EU.
An update of the classic Sax table. This balanced design blends materials, featuring two shelves, the lower one in veneered oak or walnut and the upper one in 12mm toughened glass. The construction of the table is remarkably simple, the legs are screwed together through the lower shelf and the glass shelf is placed on top, held in place by rubber pads aAvailable as a rectangular or square coffee table or round side table. Made in the EU.
A fine bone china pendant light, designed and hand made in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The form of the pendant is reminiscent of a bell, but with less of a flare at the bottom. It shines translucent when the bulb is on, while the fine bone china looks equally as beautiful when the light is off. It has a simple orange or green braided textile cable and uses the latest E27 7W or 4W low energy bulbs. Made in the UK.
Artist and designer Hannah Waldron has collaborated with SCP to develop a new textile collection that utilises the time-honoured double cloth weaving technique. Architectural elements, stacks of shape, repeating vertical lines and a rich colour palette elevate this design from the constrictions of the technique itself. The design was inspired by a journey through Japan. The indigo hues are the same as those used in traditional Japanese farmers garments to repel insects. Spun, dyed and woven in the UK.
