New SCP designer Oscar Coakley has created Kvara, a heavy duty side table made from mild steel.
The table is in the form of a letter-Z, and is raw, heavy and unyielding. Pressed to create the form, the design has a lacquered finish with noticeable temper marks. The underside has cork feet to protect floors.
Made in Hull and London.
Originally created as part of SCP’s thirtieth year celebrations, our founder Sheridan Coakley found it difficult to resist the temptation to create some unconventional products, things more like conceptual propositions than objects of mass production. He gave a number of SCP designers a free hand to decide what material, scale and form they would like to work with. They were welcome to work with their own hands, utilise specialist manufacturing techniques, or even make individual appropriations from elsewhere in the palette of things that exists already.
The resulting collection is called SCP Editions, or things we might not otherwise have made. These objects acknowledge the history SCP has of working with those who are perhaps closer to being artists than designers, and the interplay between the two disciplines which has been in evidence throughout time.
