British Brand SCP Introduces Six New Sofas
SCP explores ideas in modern upholstery making through six sofas by six designers.
The new sofas include designs by Matthew Hilton, Michael Anastassiades, Konstantin Grcic, Faudet-Harrison, Lucy Kurrein and Terence Woodgate.
Drawing upon the skills of the craftsmen at SCP's factory in Norfolk, England, the sofas are made from renewable materials using traditional techniques. Upholstery comes courtesy of Danish textile brand Kvadrat.
Taking a some inspiration from upholstery designs of the 1920s, Faudet-Harrison have created a very simple sofa, notable for the use of continuous curves and a straight line sewn lengthways down the middle of the piece.
Lucy Kurrein’s Teepee design re-interprets the sofa typology. It is inspired by the simplicity of the hammock, the possibilities of strong industrial fabrics and the tactile elegance of high fashion.
The original Pasha was a design Konstantin Grcic worked on for SCP in the 1990s, but it did not go beyond the prototype stage. This design revisits the idea of the original, which was to create a deep sofa with a particularly reclined sitting position.
Michael Anastassiades’ Rochester sofa design that grew from an inquisitiveness about how behavior is changing on public furniture, where people are now inclined to be working or engaging with media on personal devices. Rochester creates a comfortable enclosure for the user, a place for a little privacy.
Terence Woodgate’s Linear sofa is an assured design that seamlessly blends the arm, back and seat together to create one elegant form.
The Solstice sofa by Matthew Hilton is a relaxed design that developed from the seed of an idea to create a fully upholstered piece that sits directly on the floor at the back.
