The VK&C Partnership

Ian Carnduff and Hamid Van Koten are the two creative minds behind The VK&C Partnership. They are product designers who met at Glasgow School of Art, collaborating in their third year when they won a work placement with Italian furniture manufacturer Cassina. VK&C is a multidisciplinary consultancy, having recently completed landscape jobs in Scotland, a mobile ticket office for the Edinburgh festival and various furniture designs. Quentin, its pulp paper lamp, won best consumer product in the 1999 Design Week Awards, best use for paper in the Scottish Design Awards and was a finalist in the 1999 Blueprint awards. It is made of recycled paper mill waste and the group will present a new version of it at the Glasgow Collection. Also for the Glasgow Collection, it is presenting Sineseat, a prototype outdoor seat using Plaswood recycled plastic, which aims to be ecologically-sound and inexpensive.
