Overview

IOTA was commissioned by Maylim to deliver a diverse range of planters to Lancer Square, a mixed-use development in Kensington.

Work undertaken

Imposing Forum Conical 1000 planters create a sense of arrival at the main reception area. Forum is made from top-quality fibreglass [GRP] which is extremely robust and completely weatherproof. Its ‘Espresso’ colour is black with the faintest hint of brown, which blends particularly well with the fretwork screen detailing at the main entrance.

Kyoto 70 planters from IOTA’s Boulevard range are showcased within the landscaped courtyard garden which lies at the heart of the development. Available as standard in RAL 7016 [Anthracite grey], the Kyoto planters at Lancer Square were custom-coloured to RAL 8022 [Black brown]. Boulevard is a range of large, sculptural planters, combining elegant design with a high-performance fibre-reinforced cement [FRC] material.

Finally, the most significant element of IOTA’s brief was the design and fabrication of four large powder-coated steel planters to surround and protect basement rooflights. These planters, up to 10m in length, were shaped to significant falls, and designed around obstacles such as smoke vents, and to be integrated with LED underlighting. The planters were manufactured from 2mm- thick zintec steel, and were powder-coated with a specialist product from Swiss paint manufacturer IGP [IGP-DURA xal 4201 in colour Schwarzbraun].

About Lancer Square

Lancer Square is a mixed-use development in Kensington, London, comprising office, retail and hospitality premises, plus 36 boutique apartments and penthouses, arranged around a landscaped public courtyard. The design, by architects Squire & Partners, is a contemporary interpretation of the architectural character typical of the Kensington Palace conservation.
