The entrepreneur behind Glasgow-based agency Jarvie-Design – which has worked with clients including Lakeland, Linn Products and The Macallan – has launched his own furniture brand, Delupo.
Scott Jarvie, who trained at Glasgow’s College of Building & Printing and Edinburgh Napier University, has included pieces of furniture and lighting in his debut collection, which is entirely made in Scotland.
Jarvie said: “In recent years, furniture has become regarded by many as a disposable purchase.
“This is obviously unsustainable from an environmental standpoint, but also leads to a decline in people’s appreciation of fine craftsmanship.
“With Delupo, we want to make pieces people will want to keep, cherish and use forever.”
The initial range includes a dining table, a low console table and a bed, all in solid hardwood timber, along with a light-emitting diode (LED) suspended light, and a rug in merino wool and silk.
Jarvie-Design has also worked with Glasgow Museums, the National Endowment for Science, Technology & the Arts (Nesta) and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT).
Jarvie has exhibited in Milan, New York, London and Glasgow, plus at the Noise Festival, where he won Zaha Hadid’s Curator’s Choice Award.
He has also has worked with designer Thomas Heatherwick, architects’ firm Elder & Cannon, and sculptor Jacki Parry.
