SCP sustainable approach for Milan Furniture Fair

As you have probably noticed, over the last few months I have been writing and working on a project centred around cradle to cradle products, and making things as low impact as possible. I came across a piece in this weeks design week about UK furniture manufacturer SCP, who are launching a fully sustainable furniture range at this years Milan furniture fair, which runs from 22-27 April. What is interesting about the new range is that as well as the materials used to produce the furniture range has been altered (mainly changed to natural materials) there is also a part about the increased emphasis on hand crafting and manual skills to produce the work. This is another theme of unique and bespoke that somehow I believe could lead to added value way beyond the actual value of the product.
