After its successful UK debut at SCP during London Design Festival 2009 New York design store, Kiosk is back for the second year running. Its eagerly awaited return to SCP is marked by the UK launch of Kiosk's new and quirky products as well as bringing back favourites from the original collection.
The collection consists of rare but humble items found on bi-annual trips to locations across the globe. New items range from a weather-predicting rooster from Portugal to the Japanese Gangy can opener and a net bag made from the same material as Marcel Breuer’s famous swing chair. These items appear alongside much-loved products from the original collection including an American stainless steel pie cutter, which guarantees an evenly sliced pie and a German bottle opener, which can also reseal open bottles.
Available to buy now online, or in store from the 17th September.

SCP are now stocking a range of vintage Kelim rugs that have been carefully sourced and selected from the Middle East by Danish brand HAY. Each rug is an antique between 40 - 100 years old and therefore a unique piece of craftsmanship; we only have one of each design shown. The rugs are woven using a traditional technique that has survived through generations and has become part of a cultural heritage. The weavers create the rugs without using patterns to create well-known traditional motifs which they blend with designs from their own imagination. Woven with wool from camels and goats, the rugs were originally intended to serve the weavers familes, today they are used as bedspreads, ornaments or as protection against the hard soil.
