Day for Flowers exhibition
Flowers and plants were a key source of inspiration in Lucienne Day’s life and work. She was a passionate gardener and abstracted plant and flower forms appear throughout her work.
The flower brick has its origins in the decorative Delftware produced during the 18th century to hold ornate floral displays. In 1966 Lucienne Day reinterpreted this historic genre in a collection of distinctive contemporary designs that were produced in England by Bristol Potteries.
twentytwentyone has collaborated with 1882 Ltd and the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation to bring the Lucienne Day Flower Brick back into production, with a celebratory limited edition of 100.
To mark the reissue of Day’s design we have invited ten creative individuals from the worlds of fashion, design, interiors, architecture and journalism to design a floral display using a Flower Brick.
We are delighted to have the participation of Michael Anastassiades, Barber Osgerby, Paula Day, Max Fraser, Suzy Hoodless, Margaret Howell, Philippe Malouin, Alex Mowat, Nikki Tibbles and Faye Toogood.
The ten arrangements they design will be displayed at our River Street showroom, providing a dramatic and inspiring summer show of floral creations – and a fitting tribute to Lucienne Day.
Day for Flowers is hosted in association with 1882 Ltd and The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation.
It will run from Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th June.
