Apparatus Collection at SCP
By SCP ltd / March 9, 2017
SCP are pleased to announce that New York design firm Apparatus are launching…
For the London Design Festival 2018, SCP present a new chair and sofa by designer Gareth Neal, in collaboration with fashion brand Folk.
This project brings together two British companies with a reputation for understated elegance, high-quality manufacturing and idiosyncratic style. The project seeks to explore the possibilities and limitations of cyclic manufacturing, the potential of sharing materials and the need for greater permanence in what we produce.
Folk founder Cathal McAteer and furniture designer Gareth Neal began a conversation about creating a new furniture design that could utilise some of the excess fabric that is a natural part of the production of clothes. They approached Sheridan Coakley, the founder of SCP, to discuss the idea. The result is a collaboration that sees a new chair and sofa design by Gareth Neal fully upholstered in surplus Folk fabric, with the addition of a specially created removable saddle bag, which is made from surplus leather from SCP’s specialist upholstery factory in Norfolk.
Exhibited collectively, the designs are available to view at SCP Curtain Road, and at the Folk store on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch, 15-23 September.
