Stonework manufacturer develops modular system inspired by textile design
Architectural stonework manufacturer Haddonstone has launched a modular range of planters inspired by a Barbara Hepworth textile design.
Designed by Rosie Irving and Antonia Young, the St Ives Modro System was developed initially as part of the Chelsea Fringe, but will be moved to Tate Britain for the duration of the ‘Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World’ exhibition, which runs from 24 June to 25 October 2015
After this it will be moved back to the gardens of Vauxhall One where it will reside for the foreseeable future.
The Haddonstone St Ives Modro System is available in contrasting Portland stone and slate colours, both inspired directly by the Hepworth design. The Portland elements are smooth, while the late elements have a defined textured surface.
