The Barbican Shop showcase three Matthew Hilton Balzac chairs that were upholstered as part of Second Sitters vs SCP, a live upholstery performance that took place at the Geffrye Museum in May 2017. SCP upholstered the chair as intended, whilst Second Sitters curators Hannah Stanton and Jude Dennis upholstered their chairs spontaneously in their unique styles. Based in east London, Second Sitters is Hannah Stanton and Jude Dennis, both practicing upholsterers. Together they promote independent UK and international upholsterers through publications, collaborative working and exhibitions. SCP is a London based manufacturer of contemporary furniture, accessories, lighting and textiles, guided by the idea that design can transform the world around us.
