Sam Scott takes found materials and recycles them into his utilitarian and colourful products. He studied Furniture Making at Guildhall University (formerly London College of Furniture) from 2000-2002, after which he established his company Uncharted Projects, making bespoke furniture in North London. In 2010 he set up Constructive & Co., a collaboration with fellow furniture makers, who together work with architects and designers on a variety of projects, including lighting installations, full house refurbishments and one off freestanding pieces of furniture. Inspired by designers such as Piet Hein Eek, Scott re-uses the ‘waste’ that piles up in the corner of his workshop. He lets the relationship between individual materials take the lead in his furniture, using set forms and designs, whilst also allowing his choice of found materials to inform a product’s development. He showed a group of these pieces at Marsden Woo in ‘Ideal Home’, with Carol McNicoll and Jacqueline Poncelet, in November/December 2011.
