Case was established in 2006 and is the creation of British furniture pioneers Sheridan Coakley and Paul Newman.
Sheridan Coakley is a well-known figure in British furniture design industry. He set up the furniture brand SCP twenty years ago, at a time when there were very few producers of modern furniture in Britain. He has been credited with launching the careers of design luminaries such as Matthew Hilton, Konstantin Grcic and Jasper Morrison. He has unrivalled experience of how to bring ideas from conception to production and is well known for the exacting nature of the design briefs he sets.
Paul Newman has also been working in the furniture design industry for over twenty years. He started as a product designer, launching his first designs at the Salone de Mobile in 1988. The following year he opened his first retail store in London’s Notting Hill, Aero. In the following years Aero established itself and a retailer and manufacturer of fine quality design, supplying to the most renowned design retailers in Britain. More recently he formed the manufacturing company INK, which has also launched a series of successful designs to market. Newman is a well-respected expert in design, sourcing and advanced manufacturing techniques.
Coakley and Newman’s collective understanding of the international market and of manufacturing techniques worldwide brings both competence and rigour to the Case brand.
The 2006 and 2007 Case collections won international awards and Case are proud to launch the 2008 Case collection at the Salone Del Mobile 2008 in April.
