SCP are delighted to present the launch of the Kuru collection, designed by Philippe Malouin for Finnish brand Iittala.
“The French word ‘vide-poche’ refers to a bowl kept near the front door where you can empty your pockets into when coming home. Kuru pieces serve that exact purpose. The bowls allow you to neatly organise the personal belongings while displaying them in an interesting way. I wanted to design a collection that helps people create centres of gravity in their homes and provides a place for precious objects and memories, regardless of the size of their living space.” – Philippe Malouin

Meaning Gorge in Finnish, Kuru was designed to bring harmony to the interior as the initial information came from a narrow valley between steep arctic hills where people can enjoy the tranquility of nature. The full Kuru collection will be available exclusively at SCP stores consisting of casted, handmade ceramic bowls in three different sizes, a smaller glass bowl and a mouth-blown glass vase. The colour range of the objects varies from dark green and seville orange to beige and light grey. The vase comes in frosted clear and frosted moss green glass.
SCP founder, Sheridan Coakley, comments: “Iittala are known for producing works by some of the most talented designers of modern times and Philippe is following in the footsteps of these iconic designers. His Kuru collection beautifully balances sculpture and function and shows all the hallmarks of a modern classic.”
