The Universal Music Group set SCP Contracts a brief to create both a landmark reception area highly visible from Kensington High Street and a cafe that could be used as a third space by staff, a place to relax, hold informal meetings, or simply to get away from your desk.
H Studio commissioned a beautiful bespoke 6.2 metre SCP Lansdowne sofa in Paul Smith stripe for the reception area. Whilst the raw industrial cafe space was populated with the classic Chair and Stool 14 by Michael Thonet. The chairs and stools were specified in a range of bright colours, helping to give the space a playfulness and warmth.
