The Black & White Building is a proof of concept for both TOG and Waugh Thistleton Architects, created in the hope that it will inspire and push the larger architectural community to use carbon-minimal building methods and engineered timber materials. In the immediate term, the building will house companies in Shoreditch that are looking to make genuine commitments to sustainability. In the long term, however, it is an exemplary building, ushering in a new age of design based on circular thinking, natural materials, and low-carbon construction.
SCP Contracts worked closely with TOG to specify some of SCP’s own brand furniture for the space.
In keeping with the sustainable ethos of the building’s design, the upholstery specified by SCP is made at our specialist upholstery factory in Norfolk, from natural and sustainable materials. The Puffer and Clapton armchairs are 100% foam-free.
Currently, 90% of our upholstery range is created using natural, sustainable materials and traditional techniques, with the ultimate aim of creating 100% foam-free upholstery pieces. We also use water-based lacquers and other non-toxic finishes throughout our product ranges, while all of the products made from wood are made within the EU out of FSC approved timber.
