Abstract

Folk founder Cathal McAteer and furniture designer Gareth Neal began a conversation about creating a new furniture design that could utilise some of the excess fabric that is a natural part of the production of clothes. They approached Sheridan Coakley, the founder of SCP, to discuss the idea. The result is a collaboration that sees a new chair and sofa design by Gareth Neal fully upholstered in surplus Folk fabric, Exhibited during London design week and part of the Shoreditch design triangle.
