A touring showcase of modern glass design, awarded by Ann Jones, will appear at the National Centre in Sunderland from next week. The Bombay Sapphire BlueGlass Room aims to highlight the versatility of glass design in categories ranging from art to architecture. The work exhibited was nominated by glass experts and world class designers including Marc Newson, Ron Arad and Tom Dixon. Prominent exhibits include solar panels by Solar Century, the British Museum Great Court Roof by Foster & Partners and a deer’s head sculpture by William Morris (the contemporary American artist, not the 19th century designer) valued at £175 000. The exhibition runs until 23 June before moving to Cube at Manchester from 1 July.
The £50m refurbishment project has been led by architectural firm Stanton Williams, and features areas that the public can use without having to buy a ticket to a performance.
The start-up has a new visual identity designed by Wolff Olins, one year after being embroiled in a host of scandals, and two years after its last brand was launched
Created by in-house designers, the store aims to have an “immersive” feel to help customers imagine products in their own homes.
From 20-23 September, London’s Designjunction takes place on the South of the River Thames, and will see installations, exhibitions, talks and its well-known fair spread across three venues including Doon
