SCP present new designs from Matthew Hilton, Donna Wilson, David Weeks, Faudet-Harrison and Sarah Kay. Comprising new upholstery pieces, furniture and accessories, this collection includes both limited edition pieces, and those designed to be part of SCP’s permanent collection.
The new collection includes a sofa by American designer David Weeks, his first product for SCP, and a new armchair by SCP stalwart Matthew Hilton. Sarah Kay has designed a new dining table and bench in solid oak, based on the classic trestle table typology. Faudet-Harrison present the new Pillar sofa – short for Caterpillar the design is created to form around stationary objects in the room. In a departure from her previous work for SCP, Donna Wilson is producing a set of limited edition one-off pieces, both hand-painted natural wood chairs and mirrors in non-linear shapes.

SCP present the new Raami collection by Jasper Morrison. Raami, meaning “frame” in Finnish, gives space for the shared, lasting moments. The carefully composed pieces of the collection work together to promote a good atmosphere around the table, from the morning to the evening. Each item in the collection is an individual; perfect on its own, yet a meaningful part of the entity. Like a family, or a group of friends, each member brings their own characteristics to the table.

For the UK launch of american wallpaper brand Calico, SCP present present Prism, a new ambient collection that plays with the idea of refracted and diffused light. The original inspiration for the collection came after a stay at a secluded beachside cottage, where the first rays of morning light would shine through decorative crystals suspended in the windowpanes, infusing the sunlight with flashes of chromatic colour that danced across the rustic walls. Prism will be exhibited alongside wallpaper from Calico’s existing collection, including Aurora, Wabi, Aura and Inverted Spaces.
Calico Wallpaper are a US based company that was founded by Rachel and Nick Cope. They were inspired to create a brand that could bring art beyond the frame and incorporate its elements into everyday interior spaces. Through experimentation with the re-appropriation of traditional art forms, and the digital enlargement of unique, handmade patterns, their idea is to create custom fit, non-repeating wall murals. They balance background and foreground, texture, colour and pattern to create immersive environments, and are continually exploring the expressive possibilities of living space.

Inspired by the combination of the lid and handle on Walter Gropius’ TAC teapot, British designer Bethan Laura Wood created a tea set that is both striking and expressive in homage to the iconic original.
A distinctive slender handle, the rim of which protrudes over the lid, and a spout featuring a sunken relief inform the linear body of the pot. The teapot lid, with its profiled upturned shape, is in dialogue with the handle. The design marries linear architectural forms with the playful frivolity of the 1970s, creating wonderfully captivating pieces. The Tongue tea service is available in the limited-edition colour variants Pelican (Chewing Gum – Hot Coral – Peacock) and Peacock (Mild Turquoise – Peacock – Clay). Only 50 pieces of the tea set have been made and the accompanying rim plate, espresso cup and saucer and teacup and saucer are also limited editions.

SCP present new designs from Floris Wubben. Founded in Amsterdam in 2009, Studio Floris Wubben is a design studio that produces experimental ceramics and objects that seek to push the boundaries of function and sculpture. All of the designs they produce are made at their own workshop, where in recent years, a great focus has been put on the development of processes and the design of machines for production. Nature and the use of natural materials are a key theme in the work of the studio, which alongside ceramic pieces, also produces lighting and furniture designs.
