SCP are pleased to present Resident’s collection of furniture and lighting.
In a specially designed space, a range of Resident products are being exhibited. Including Philippe Malouin’s Offset range, Tim Rundle’s Bloom lights as well as Simon James’s Kashmir chair and barstool – the latter being presented for the first time worldwide.
Join us for a talk with Tim Rundle and Philippe Malouin, hosted by Duncan Riches, on 20 February from 6:30pm to 9pm. Talk starts at 7pm. RSVP here.
Resident is a design company from New Zealand that works with talents from multiple disciplines, including industrial and furniture design, architecture and sculpture. Resident’s products blend innovation with an appreciation for simple forms. The result is a collection of objects that harmonise with a room or act as a deliberate contrast.
Philippe Malouin is a Canadian born, London based designer. In addition to his collaborations with SCP and Resident, he works with successful brands such as MATTER, Kvadrat and Aesop. Philippe recently won the W Hotels ‘Designer of the Future’ award and the Wallpaper* ‘Designer of the Year’ award.
His latest design for Resident is the Offset Range, consisting of a dining table, coffee table and stool. Malouin explains that the inspiration for the series came while he was trying to align a table base and top. The alignment wasn’t quite right, so he decided to offset it, which is how the Offset collection was born.
Tim Rundle is a London based industrial designer hailing from New Zealand. With experience across furniture, lighting, consumer products, technology and transport, his work has grown to focus on the design of products that exist at the intersection between architecture and its inhabitants. His approach is driven by a fascination for the relationship people build with the objects and spaces that surround them.
His Bloom pendant and table light are made of glass and steel. The design features a perforated mesh core to filter the indirect light, projecting a soft texture onto the blown glass diffuser. The white version, with clear frosted glass and nickel plating adds warmth to a space, while the black version emits a more atmospheric light, with black nickel plating and smoked glass. The Bloom Pendants’ super-elliptical form is inspired by the gentle dynamic flow of paper lanterns.
Simon James is the Creative Director of Resident and designs original furniture for both residential and commercial spaces under the name Simon James Design. Having founded his eponymous brand in 2001, Simon’s appreciation of craftsmanship continues to deepen, as he explores material tactility in new and exciting ways. His design approach is largely intuitive, placing people and their experiences of a space at the center of his work.
The exhibition will include the worldwide launch of Simon James’s Kashmir Chair and Barstool, which will be available exclusively at SCP in the UK.
