SCP 2012 Collection
British design label SCP has recently launched their 2012 Collection that includes products by the likes of Ineke Hans, Kay+Stemmer and Donna Wilson. Here’s a little sneak peak to some of the favorites.
Cricket Bench & Table by Kay+Stemmer
The Cricket bench by Kay+Stemmer is a lengthened and lowered seating version of the classic “cricket table” typology. The bench has four legs with a slight outward splay, giving the piece stability and strength. Modest yet elegant, the bench uses a simple wedged tenon joint to hold the legs in place. The corners and edges of the solid oak top are softly sanded to create a smooth finish, whilst the walnut legs have a reverse taper that brings an aesthetic balance to the overall design.

The Cricket table by Kay+Stemmer is a new design interpretation of the classic “cricket table” typology, believed to date back to the Jacobean period in Britain. This version has four legs rather than three, but retains the outward splay of the legs that lends the table its stability and strength. This modest yet elegant design uses a simple wedged tenon joint to hold the legs in place. The corners and edges of the solid oak top are softly sanded to create a smooth finish, whilst the centrally positioned walnut legs have a reverse taper that brings an aesthetic balance to the overall design.

Bertha Armchair by Donna Wilson
The Bertha armchair by Donna Wilson is an exciting joint project between SCP and the Shorefast Foundation on Fogo Island. The design takes inspiration from the traditional boat building found on the Island. The frame is made from FSC approved Douglas Fir and is designed to provide both rigidity and strength. The sides of the frame are flat whilst the four back panels gently kick outwards like a boats hull. The feet are part of the frame design, this gives the piece the sense of a beautifully crafted continuous line. The loose drop seat has elasticated webbing with neatly fitting feather and down seat and back cushions upholstered in Bora Da Willow fabric.

Ruth is a three-shelf wall mounted version of the design, ideal for books or home office filing. It is made from solid oak or walnut with veneered shelves.

The Welland Collection by Ineke Hans
The Welland stool, bench and table collection by Ineke Hans is her first range of designs for SCP. Beautifully crafted and constructed, each piece is made from individually cut sections of solid ash using advanced wood manufacturing techniques. This effortlessly elegant design is a simple blend of curves and straight lines. For comfort, the stool and bench feature a slightly concave seat made in two sections. Each piece retains its visual balance through minor refinements to individual component dimensions. The Welland collection is a proportionally accurate set of designs, flexible and rigid in construction and ultimately very pleasing on the eye. The collection is available in red stain, or natural ash.
