So as I'm sure you're all aware by now, we have recently collaborated with the Hayward Gallery, on a range of home ware and stationery products. The gallery contacted us back in September 2017 and commissioned a bespoke collection, exclusive to the Southbank Centre, a world-famous, multi-venue arts centre based in Central London.
Chosen for my design ethos; "designing thoughtful, tactile products that inspire the viewer to look longer and deeper at raw beauty", I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to portray this Brutalist style gallery in a beautiful and commercial way.
The controversial 1960/70’s 'Brutalist' architectural style, is so often dismissed without consideration of its true merits. It’s so fulfilling to showcase these for what they really are. The collection is urban and raw, but with a soft feel, it was a really fun challenge.
The range includes;
a choice of 6 art cards
6 notebook designs (sold in sets of 3)
6 digital A2 prints
cotton tea towels in 2 designs
placemats in 2 designs
cushions in 2 sizes/designs
So far they have only uploaded 2 of the 6 products to their website, to purchase the notebooks or placemats, visit the Hayward Gallery’s online shop, or for the full collection visit their museum stores.
