The resulting collection spans a wide range of disciplines and styles, such as jewellery, ceramic, wood-turning and quilting. No two designs are alike, yet each conveys a sense of Mackintosh’s personality and style alongside that of the contemporary designers and makers who contributed designs.
While working on designs to celebrate and showcase the legacy of Mackintosh, the designers and makers grew much closer to his work. Following on from their designs, we have worked with them to devise talks, demonstrations and workshops revolving around the project. These experiences are a tangible and memorable opportunity for visitors to deepen their connection with Mackintosh and his legacy in contemporary Scottish design.
The collection prompts visitors to the exhibition to consider the impact Mackintosh has had on design over the last century and a half; the pioneering, radical ideas he embraced and how they have been distilled as his legacy developed and took on a momentum of its own.
In a world of ‘Mockintosh’ tributes and gimmicks, the Reflecting Mackintosh collection offers a genuine response and refreshing alternative for those who want to take a truly unique memory of Mackintosh home with them.
