Soft Power

London Design Festival 2023

An exhibition of sustainable design and enduring ideas.

For the London Design Festival 2023, SCP are pleased to present Soft Power, an exhibition of sustainable design and enduring ideas at our Curtain Road Showroom in Shoreditch, featuring four different shows under one roof.

SCP 2023 Upholstery Collection

A collection of sustainable upholstery designs; sofas and armchairs, all made by-hand in natural materials at SCP’s specialist upholstery factory in Norfolk, England. It features four new sofas and two new armchairs, blending together the ornate with the restrained, the extravagant with the classical, in an exploration of the idea of soft power.

Roll & Hill | Nash Martinez Collection

As a special accompaniment to the new SCP 2023 Upholstery Collection, we are delighted to present a range of new lights from our long-term New York collaborator, Roll & Hill.

Designed by Oregon based designer Nash Martinez, the collection features refined wall and ceiling mounted designs entitled Arch, Grace, Koko, Slope, Surface, Strike and Valo. Martinez began his design career as a 20th Century design dealer, only to move into lighting design once his acute sense of form and material had been honed. This collection is the result of his meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of how lighting changes a room.

Sons of Beasley | Carl Clerkin and Alex Hellum

After the success of The Beasley Brothers Repair shop by Carl Clerkin (and friends) at the Eternally Yours exhibition at Somerset House last year, Carl is at SCP for LDF presenting Sons of Beasley alongside designer and colleague Alex Hellum. They are producing a new collection of chairs as a live spectacle for the duration of Soft Power.

Visitors can enjoy a fully equipped live workshop on the ground floor of SCP, staffed by Carl, Alex and friends, all of whom will be making things by-hand, from offcuts, components and materials donated by local cabinet maker Plykea.
