Coexistence is hosting an exhibition of SCP furniture re-upholstered by some of Britain’s top designers from 14 September to 4 October. Entitled About a Chair, the event is linked to the forthcoming 100% Design show at London’s Earls Court and features work by Rachel Whiteread, Matthew Hilton, Andrew Stafford and Jay Osgerby. Using a variety of Bute Fabrics originating from Scotland, including boucle tiree and tweed, the designers claim to breathe ‘new life into well-loved furniture’. Exhibits include the Foster 500 series designed by Foster, the Nelson swivel chair by EOOS and the Easy sofa by Pearson Lloyd. The furniture can be viewed at Coexistence’s Islington showroom by appointment only. 100% Design runs from 26 to 29 September.
