Three-dimensional designer Bruce Morgan has created his first solo design, on display at the Dollar Academy in Clackmannanshire, Scotland from next week. Morgan was briefed to revitalise the academy’s science block and highlight its commitment to the arts. The design uses multicoloured Perspex discs suspended by stainless steel wire under a skylight. Playing on the science theme it gives the illusion of a column of luminous bubbles floating from floor to ceiling and makes an uninspiring space more inviting, says Morgan. ‘The design incorporates function because the discs are also display cases that can be used by students to exhibit work,’ he adds. Morgan has previously worked on projects, including the Brand.New exhibition, as part of the Thomas Heatherwick Studio.
