Lumsden designs Henry Moore shop

Design studio Lumsden has created a light and airy retail store for the Henry Moore Foundation's estate at the artist's former home and studios in Hertfordshire. The shop is one of a number of new buildings designed by Hugh Broughton Architects.

Taking inspiration from interior photos of Moore's art studio, Lumsden has designed a series of varying height furniture for the 240 sq m shop using oak, glass, bronzed metal with brass and leather detailing.

The studio-like display tables incorporate leather handles with brass details on the drawers and a bronzed metal effect on the legs, which adds texture to the the scheme.

To maximise floor space, stock is stored in drawer units on castors tucked under the tables.

Locally grown produce from the estate’s Kitchen Garden are displayed in bespoke fixtures created out of stacked breeze blocks and scaffold boards, which can be wheeled outside.

'We wanted to design a shop which referenced the images we have seen of Moore’s art workshop, creating an environment with a studio-like feel,' says Catriona Mills, associate design director at Lumsden.

The fixtures and metalwork were created in collaboration with David Littlejohn at MSS Interiors.

The Henry Moore Foundation is celebrating 40 years in 2017 with a series of special events.
