Algue.MGX

“The Algue.MGX ornamental table lamp seems to undulate following the streams and moving fluids in our environment. It is a lit evocation of the abyssal depths of our oceans.”

I’m a big Barbara Hepworth fan so I am desperate to visit the new Chipperfield designed Hepworth Wakefield, both for the works inside and the architecture of the building.

The identity devised by APFEL is not too shabby either, though it has drawn a certain amount of controversy, with suggestions that maybe  the job should have been given to a local Yorkshire agency, comparisons with the Hayward Gallery’s branding and complaints that the new bespoke typeface (Hepworth Regular) should be more rounded, with organic letter forms to better reflect Hepworth’s signature use of oval motifs and natural forms.
