Seeking to re-imagine traditional typologies, SCP’s 2020 Collection features upholstery and furniture designs by Matthew Hilton, Sarah Kay, David Weeks, Faudet-Harrison and Reiko Kaneko. Sarah Kay has created Jethro, a solid oak dining table and bench, which are based on the classic barn table and bench, but are elevated through intricate and beautiful woodworking details. Matthew Hilton has designed Colemore, a new open-sided upholstered armchair of great elegance and poise as well as the Beam desk, an extension of the existing coffee table. Faudet-Harrison debut the new Pillar sofa, whose design is created to form itself around stationary objects in a room. Reiko Kaneko has created the Orlando two seat sofa to complement the lounge chair of the same range. While American designer David Weeks, in his first product for SCP, has created Winchester, a sofa that takes inspiration from manmade forms.
An opened armed upholstered chair with a striking silhouette. Colemore has good style and line. Designed by Matthew Hilton, whose freehand approach and depth of understanding of the materials in play allow him to create sculptural pieces that have real strength of character.
Jethro uses classic joinery in a refined and sensitive way. Inspired by her training in fine cabinet making, Sarah Kay has has employed her deep understanding of woodworking to creating something that is both layered and beautifully simple.
The Pillar sofa is a design made for relaxing and lengthy lounging. Fully upholstered to the floor, it has a continuous seam detail that lends it an organic look. Faudet-Harrison are long standing SCP collaborators and their understanding of the complexities of upholstery making has allowed them to create a design of great comfort, flexible enough in concept to be appropriate in domestic, commercial or public settings.
This design has a small footprint, yet noticeably generous proportions. The frame has a gentle curving detail between the back and arm rests. A small amount of flex in the back of the frame adds to its comfort.
The Winchester sofa is a new take on a formal typology, with an upholstered frame separate from the seat and back cushions. New York based American designer David Weeks has created a modern look by the use of extended pleats on the seat and back to give the cushions their tension.
Beam is a refined design that effortlessly blends steel and wood in a straightforward construction. It comes as either a coffee table or a desk. Unerringly simple in form, it is a design created to serve a basic function while minimising visual noise.
