New to store: Storigraphic x Hornsea®
We're incredibly pleased to reveal our much anticipated, exciting new collaboration with celebrated British heritage design brand, Hornsea®.
The Storigraphic x Hornsea® collection has launched with a capsule paperware range, featuring acclaimed pattern designs including favourites Heirloom, Saffron and Brontë.
Working in partnership with Hornsea® is a happy dream come true for our Co-founders & Creative Directors, Nic and Roz. They have long admired and been galvanised by the iconic pottery studio’s work — representing 50 years of British design heritage, Hornsea®’s surface pattern designs and approach to production was ahead of its time. Founded in 1949 by the Rawson brothers, the studio quickly went on to achieve great prosperity and acclaim — selling pottery in thousands of outlets across the world for over five decades, with virtually every household in Britain having at least one piece of Hornsea® pottery during that time. Today Hornsea® is revered as a great British design story, with a 500 member collector society and a museum dedicated to its legacy.
On a significant day back in the mid-90’s, Nic and Roz stumbled across two pieces of Hornsea® pottery at a local market in Kent, an Heirloom coffee pot and fruit bowl. They were art students at the time and with little money left for their term, they fell in love and snapped both pieces up. Hornsea® remained a constant inspiration for them throughout their design careers. They still have the two Heirloom pieces to this day and feel privileged to be a part of Hornsea®’s newest design journey.
For this collaboration, we were given full access to Hornsea®’s library of iconic pattern designs to create an exclusive new paperware collection. The concept, to select six patterns that would be applied as originally created, albeit in 2D form and with new colourways, and then to create six (subtle) variations of the same patterns as their modern versions. Following design and development, we are proud to present the definitive Storigraphic x Hornsea® ‘Originals/Moderns’ collection.
