Textbook Textiles

Hewitt Studios are delighted to have our product design referenced in A. Briggs-Goode and K. Townsend’s fantastic book ‘Textile Design: Principles, Advances and Applications’.

Gill Hewitt’s striking Strata series of modular, sound absorbing acoustic panels is discussed as an example of best practice in the application of new technology to textile based surface design. Gill combines her keen eye for colour, rhythm and textural subtleties with tested acoustic benefit to complement the contemporary architectural interior.

Described as an ‘essential reference work for design professionals’, the book is published by Woodhead Publishing in association with The Textile Institute, and is part of a series exploring the future of textile technologies.

Keep an eye out for Gill’s latest product design work, coming soon!

Sustainable Infrastructure

Hewitt Studios are collaborating with a leading industry supplier to develop an exciting concept for a sustainable new transport infrastructure.

This has lead to some off-beat encounters, including that pictured above!

We hope to be able to announce the first demonstration project later in the year.

#Hectic @HolmeLacy

We currently have two projects on site at the Holme Lacy campus of Herefordshire and Ludlow College.

The refurbishment of the existing Learning Resources Centre (LRC) (pictured above) will be complete for the start of the autumn term. This project adjoins the award-winning Straw Bale Cafe and creates a new external social space between the Cafe and LRC for the benefit of all College students.

Preparations for our sustainable crosslam workshop have also begun – this utilises is a pre-fabricated timber structure which will allow for an extremely rapid on-site build.
