Designers Scott, Rich and Victoria of London and Auckland have created this collection of oak and metal furniture.
The collection, called Tabbed, consists of a dining chair and two matching tables.
The pieces are constructed from folded sheet metal and hand-finished oak elements, with legs that can be interchanged for different shapes.
The collection was first presented at the London Design Festival 2010.
The following is from the designers.
Consisting of dining chairs and matching tables the TABBED collection is a family of products defined by interaction between folded planes of sheet metal and hand finished oak elements. With refined details and sophisticated folds the TABBED collection is an elegant marriage of materials.
Customizable front legs allow each group to have with its own creative and playful individuality. Available in a variety of natural and stained colour combinations to suit any interior setting.
The TABBED collection by Scott, Rich & Victoria was first presented as part of their ‘Year Apart’ Collection at ‘The Tramshed’ event during the London Design Festival 2010. The complete collection was designed over the course of twelve months, across twelve time zones.
Overcoming the challenges of working from both sides of the globe (the studio split between London and Auckland) encouraged unique approach to the design process.
“Utilising the internet isn’t meant to simulate real life, and - in many ways - that’s one of the strengths of collaborating online, since it forces us to think and work differently. This influences our process, the pieces, their individuality.”
Scott, Rich & Victoria is the inter-disciplinary design partnership of New Zealanders Scott Fitzsimons and Richard Hartle, who began working together in London in late 2007.
The pair established their international creative studio in September 2009, based in both London and Auckland, accessible to international manufacturers across Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions.
The studio works on a diverse range of projects encompassing furniture, lighting, interiors, exhibitions and product based experiments.
