Canteen collection combines nostalgia with modern aesthetics

The Canteen collection was inspired by post-war British design techniques
Very Good & Proper (VG&P), a British furniture brand, has curated a new dining collection that combines traditional woodworking techniques with a contemporary aesthetic.

The collection includes pieces from a number of designers, including Ed Carpenter and André Klauser, whose Canteen series consists of a table, chair, bar chair and coat hook, and is described as VG&P's signature collection.

A reimagination of the post-war British school chair, the Canteen Utility Chair is a lightweight and stackable chair with a simple design, that retains the nostalgic feel of the school chair, in a versatile and modern colour palette and is available in two versions: upholstered and un-upholstered.

Available in four sizes; regular, large, extra-large and console; the Canteen Table is a versatile table also inspired by post-war British designs and has a number of customisable options including table tops and edge details in a range of finishes.

"Inspired by the classic post-war British school chair, the Canteen Utility Chair is a design classic, specified by the likes of companies such as Google and Facebook for their respective HQ’s. The Canteen Utility Chair's simple, light-weight and stackable design retains the look and feel of the original, whilst simultaneously updating both the aesthetic and production methods," says Ed Carpenter, designer and copany director at VG&P.

"Since our early beginnings, VG&P prides itself on taking a hands-on approach and working closely with suppliers to inform our designs and achieve the best results. The quality of our products comes first and we never compromise on materials or manufacturing. Our products are built to last," he adds.

Other pieces in the collection include: the Bird collection by Michael Marriott and the Pino Chair by John Tree.
