The St Ives Modro System ™ is inspired by a Barbara Hepworth textile design. The concept for this unique modular design comes from Rosie Irving, designed by Rosie Irving and Antonia Young.
Haddonstone has transformed the design into a three dimensional form for use initially as part of the Chelsea Fringe before it is 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. This major retrospective will emphasise Barbara Hepworth’s often overlooked prominence in the international art world, of which she was a leading figure in the 1930s, and one of the most successful artists in the world during the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition charts Barbara Hepworth’s progress from small carvings made as a young woman to the magnificent bronzes that became part of the great sculpture collections of the world. It will present many of her surviving pre-war carvings, and some of her most significant sculptures in wood, stone and bronze. The exhibition will also encompass rarely seen works, including textiles. Born in 1903, Barbara Hepworth lived in St Ives from 1949 until her death in 1975.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a Barbara Hepworth inspired design, manufactured by the world’s leading stonework manufacturer. The St Ives Modro System ™ is supplied by Haddonstone in contrasting Portland and Slate colours reflecting the original Barbara Hepworth design. The Portland elements are smooth, whilst the Slate elements have a defined textured surface.
Normally associated with classical and traditional designs, in recent years Haddonstone has developed a collection of art deco and cubist planters and has also worked with Robert A.M. Stern to create a contemporary collection of planters, pedestals, fountains and fireplaces. The new St Ives Modro System ™ allows designers, developers and private clients to enhance any open space with a robust contemporary design – whether a private garden, public park, commercial or residential development.
Being a modular system, a client can either recreate the Barbara Hepworth design in its entirety or just use certain elements, either to create an entirely new shape or to just use a particular segment of the original. The price shown is for the complete design. Please contact your nearest Haddonstone office to discuss alternative configurations.
Please note that mechanical lifting on site in all instances.
