SCP Autumn / Winter 2010 Collection
One of the UK’s most highly respected graphic design practices Farrow has created a series of clocks for SCP called Notime, Nightime and Finetime. The three clocks are Farrow’s first venture into product design and perfectly encapsulate Farrow's clean and minimal iconic graphic style whilst communicating their own individual message about time. Notime is a clock with a pure white face and minimal fluorescent detailing, Nightime, a luminous version with a black face and Finetime, with more extensive fluorescent detailing for a more accurate reading of the time. Enclosed in an anodised aluminium case, each clock features a seamlessly sweeping second hand with matching screen printed detailing on an aluminium face, whilst a battery quartz movement keeps an accurate time. Made in the UK.
Inspired by simple graphic drawings, the Slide mirror toys with reflection, perception and depth. A black border on the mirror, reminiscent of a graffiti drop shadow, gives the piece its three-dimensional aspect. The 4mm single sheet of glass has been screen printed to create the shadow effect.
The Sprig Collection comprises a teacup and saucer, a mug, milk jug, side plate and a salad bowl. It features a number of springtime inspired patterns of leaves and flora by Scottish designer Donna Wilson.

The Sprig Collection is an overtly idiosyncratic design collection, conceived, designed and made in Britain.

The Josiah lights are as versatile as they are beautiful; they can be fitted with the latest innovative light sources, making them suitable for both commercial and residential environments.

It is wall mounted and made from solid and veneered European oak and comes with a polished edged rectangular mirror. It features five large coat hooks crafted in cone shapes and three smaller cylindrical hooks, for items such as keys. Jeeves sits flush against the wall, the top section, which acts as an enclosed shelf, is also where the mirror sits. Understated and utilitarian, Jeeves is as articulate as it is practical.

Fresh and spring like, the Wilma bench can be used to sit on and is also firm enough to be used as a table. Manufactured at SCP’s factory in Britain, Wilma’s upholstered seat has been made using sustainable materials such as rubberised coconut hair, which gives the seat a crisp and firm feel. The seat is finished in Donna’s very own patterned Mabel linen, which complements its simple form and clean lines. The cushioned seat is perched upon four turned solid beech legs, which are slightly splayed giving the stool a light appearance and a playful personality. Upholstered in Britain.
Lee Kirkbride’s Calvo side table lends itself to a variety of settings and a number of uses. It’s tilted stem and 3-point base allow Calvo to sit closer and more comfortably next to an armchair, sofa or bed. The tabletop is produced from solid ash and incorporates a recessed surface giving the top a delicate tray edge detail. The stretcher that connects the column and the foot of Calvo’s base is tapered to give the illusion of an elegantly shaped twist.
As a development of Alex Hellum’s Ulrik stool launched in 2009 this year SCP introduces the Ulrik barstool. Both stools display the same solid ash legs and seat with a beautifully executed joinery detail that allows the seat to be constructed from two separate parts. The stool’s ergonomics have been adjusted to suit its elevated position. The seat of the bar stool lies horizontally allowing the user to sit more comfortably and the fold of the seat is positioned towards the back to form a backrest which doubles as a handle. These adjustments link the seat to the footrest at the front and give the stool both poise and direction.
The Compass trestles are a study in elegance and balance. They are made from steamed solid beech and are available in natural or stained black finish. Designed with practicality and stability in mind, the Compass consists of three component parts that fit together to create a sturdy table base. The top height is adjustable and can fit the needs of a table, desk or workbench. The Compass is notable for its finely drawn details, tapered legs that ascend into a mid-leg curve and rounded neoprene pads that secure the tabletop. The Compass comes as a pair, a separate range of tabletops in different sizes and finishes are available to accompany them.
Named in tribute to the American jazz saxophonist, John Coltrane, the Coltrane low table evokes the laid back spirit of smoky jazz clubs and relaxed decadence. An evolution of the Sax coffee table, the Coltrane table is made from two tiers of elliptical toughened glass. The walnut or ash legs create a contrast between the clean lines of the sheet glass and the warm tones of natural wood.
Design Duo, Kay + Stemmer have designed a pair of freestanding shelves called Edith and Agnes. Edith is the smaller 3-shelf version and Agnes is taller with 5 shelves. Edith and Agnes come fully assembled, cabinet built in solid oak or walnut. They have the hallmarks of classical training; details include radius edges, a gentle upwards taper and perfect proportion. The result is a notably softened looking shelving range, free standing with poise and a sense visual balance
The Oscar chaise longue strikes a pleasing balance between modernity and tradition, large in size yet light in appearance. It retains the elegance of the Oscar armchair but the elongated, open-ended cushion, creates a touch of luxury. The Oscar chaise longue has a European hardwood frame, jute webbing and hessian straps. It is upholstered with a mix of materials including natural fibres, animal hair and wool and the seat cushion is feather filled. The feet are made from walnut stained beech, with the front two being turned. By contrasting long straight lines with delicate natural curves, Hilton has created a piece that is both reserved and full of humility. The Oscar chaise longue is a piece perfect for those who like their modernity laced with a little familiarity.
