Canteen furniture by Very Good & Proper

London Design Festival 09: new British design and production company Very Good & Proper launched their first collection at The Dock in London last month.

Called Canteen, the collection includes a chair, table and coat hook.

The pressed beech plywood seat of the chair is supported by a powder-coated steel frame.

The aluminium table legs attach directly to the underside of the top and are also supplied separately for use with an existing or found top.

A powder-coated plate behind the knob of the coat hook forms a secondary hook and protects the wall behind from scratches.

Very Good & Proper is a collaboration between London designers Klauser & Carpenter and restaurateur Patrick Clayton-Malone.

The Canteen collection was originally designed Canteen restaurant in Baker Street, London, co-founded by Clayton-Malone.
