Lucienne Day centenary edition Flower BrickA limited, numbered edition of Lucienne Day’s 1960s flower brick design has been produced by twentytwentyone to mark Day’s centenary.

Day for Flowers saw a range of creative individuals from the design world present their own tribute to Lucienne Day by using her Flower Brick design to create a unique floral arrangement.

Day for Flowers exhibition The participating designers were Barber & Osgerby, Paula Day, Max Fraser, Suzy Hoodless, Margaret Howell, Philippe Malouin, Alex Mowatt, Nikki Tibbles and Faye Toogood working with Yasuyo Harvey.

The arrangements produced were remarkable for their diversity of form and the variety of flowers and foliage used. Crisply architectural formations stood side by side with abundant displays of colour, texture and shape.

Paula Day’s arrangement had a particularly personal resonance. Her blooms included cuttings from her mother’s favourite ‘New Dawn’ rose, taken from a plant grown by Lucienne Day but now transplanted to her daughter’s garden.
