Erlend Firth, a final year Interior Design student at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA), has created a new piece of design which will be displayed in the Virgin Money Lounge in Glasgow.
The design entitled, “Get Your Mackintosh On”, features a gentle play on words combining Glasgow’s notoriously wet weather with its most iconic building. An image of the main entrance to the Mackintosh Building is seen in the background with an umbrella bearing characters in the foreground and the text “Get Your Mackintosh On” written in the celebrated Charles Rennie Mackintosh font. The design, which is the focus of the wall behind the main staircase, was unveiled today (insert date)
The GSA was approached in 2015 with a live project for its third year Interior Design students to create a design treatment for the stairwell in the Virgin Money Lounge in Glasgow. There was a £1,000 prize and a two week placement with a London design agency. The competition was won by Erlend Firth.
