The SCP Cedric desk is an exercise in simplicity, refinement and deft detailing. Kay+Stemmer have drawn on all of their Parnham School training to produce a piece that has perfect proportion and reveals a mastery of craftmanship often overlooked in contemporary design.
At first glance, the desk has an angular and formal appearance, yet closer inspection reveals a proliferation of rounded edges in the detailing, softening its overall look and highlighting the sense of subtlety in the piece. The Cedric desk is made from solid European walnut and features a brown leather top with expertly lined drawers. This is one for the purists.
Kay + Stemmer aim to design contemporary furniture that will enhance our living environment; and, through its aesthetic and use of materials, have the longest possible life span. As trained cabinet makers (from John Makepeace’s renowned Parnham College in Dorset), they regard good craftsmanship to be integral to a good design. Their Agnes range for SCP is fast becoming a modern day classic.
