A collection of designs made from laser-cut hot dip galvanised steel. Large, at an industrial kind of scale, they are constructed with large oversized nuts and bolts.
Each shelf has been hand finished, utilising hydrochloric acid to strip back some of the zinc, creating a mottled finish, almost like camouflage. Despite their scale and apparent roughness, they have soft rounded edges and are reassuringly sturdy.
Made in Yorkshire, England.
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.
Each SCP Edition is numbered and signed by the designer.
