Slatted Bench cushion

 Mourne Slatted Bench cushion by Gerd Hay-Edie for Mourne Textiles.

twentytwentyone have marked the relaunch of the 1954 Slatted Bench by Robin Day with a collaboration with Mourne Textiles, honouring the close working relationship between Day and noted textiles designer and founder of Mourne Textiles, Gerd Hay-Edie.

Hay-Edie started to work with Robin Day in 1951 and her rugs formed part of designs that were recognised with a silver medal at La Triennale de Milano. Her woven textiles were used throughout Hille productions in the early 1950s and the productive relationship continued for a decade. 

Four colours have been selected and matched from original heritage palettes in the Mourne archive: white Cloud, Granite, yellow Gorse and green Tollymore.

The cushion design echoes those seen in historical images from the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation photographic archive, with zipped covers and plain seam.

Mourne Textiles is a family-run business dedicated to producing woven fabrics of exceptional design and quality using the last remaining production hand loom weaving workshop in Northern Ireland.

The company was originally founded by the celebrated textile designer Gerd Hay-Edie. From the 1950s onwards, Hay-Edie designed and produced textiles for clients such as Robin Day, Hille, Conran and Liberty as well as fashion designers Sybill Connolly and Sheila Mullally.

In the present day, Mourne Textiles - now run by Hay-Edie's grandson - works to bring these classic mid-century designs back into production while remaining faithful to the unique spirit of Hay-Edie's originals.
