Top names design for Sudeley Castle



Tom Dixon, Zaha Hadid, furniture and interior designer Rolf Sachs and French homewares designer Arik Levy are creating works for a sculpture exhibition at Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds.



Based on the theme of play, Artists’ Playground will feature an oak-and-steel ping-pong table by Sachs and an ‘architectural environment to encourage the nurturing of endangered species’ by Tom Dixon.



Hadid is contributing a giant slide, while the creator of last year’s Tate Modern slides installation, Carsten Höller, has been commissioned to build a flying machine.



Art dealer Kenny Schachter is co-ordinating the design element of the show, which was conceived by Gagosian Gallery founder Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst and Hiscox Collection curator Elliot McDonald.



Additional pieces include a tree house by artist Henry Krokatsis and a kaleidoscope and camera obscura by James Hopkins. Artist Jeppe Hein is producing a mirrored labyrinth.



Artist’s Playground runs from 31 May to 31 October, at Sudeley Castle, Cheltenham.
