Harrod Horticultural came to Kobius to design a trellis that retains the aesthetic and integrity of their typically welded garden structures whilst offering the gardener more flexibility by being able to assemble their trellis however they choose.
Together we created an easy to assemble node system that secures crossing trellis bars wherever the user requires and can be attached to a wall with no visible fixings. The trellis has a clean, yet traditional appearance with all the engineering cunningly hidden away.
We evolved the idea, generating initial sketches and taking the trellis through to manufacture.
The nodes offer a novel solution to assembling these structures and are currently patent-pending.
In its first season, the Trellis System outstripped Harrod's sales expectations.Contact Us >
Having worked with Harrod Horticultural on a number of projects, they returned with a request to design branding that could be applied to their high quality bespoke garden products.
Our solution was a metal Harrod badge that could be used in variety of marketing situations such as suspended from plant supports or handed out at events.
The badges have a distinctive patina that fits well with Harrod's robust plant structures and their pre-rusted product ranges. They are attractive in themselves encouraging customers to keep them on display.
We also sourced suppliers and ensured the badges could be manufactured within budget.Contact Us >
