Scottish gallery The Lighthouse has commissioned 20 artists and designers to create a series of contemporary snow domes for its Winter 2003 show. Originally created in the 19th century as souvenirs, snow domes have recently taken on a more ironic persona, says The Lighthouse exhibition manager Leonie Bell. The domes on show include One Foot Taller’s Is it Me, Or Is It Chilli In Here? (left), Timorous Beasties’ Extreme Snowglobing (centre) and Graphical House’s Away from the Sleigh (right). The exhibition, which is designed by Jerki, runs from tomorrow until 11 January 2004.
The multidisciplinary group of creatives bring a range of talents and experience to the challenge of how organisations react to the climate crisis.
Designers have a pop-up garden, a deep dive into British logos, the Beazley Designs of the Year exhibition and more to see them into the autumn months.
Design studio Civilization has given “natural organic reduction” company Recompose a new identity based on “family trees and route systems”.
Some of the most inspiring projects from the month include heat-reactive stamps with a hidden message and a mycelium “living coffin”.
