This design derived from an interrogation of the new school of art building that I was inspired by on a daily basis. The great new building had been short listed for the UK’s most prestigious Riba Stirling Prize.

A key element throughout the new School of Art building is a series of steel-braced oak staircases and bridges that connect the different levels of the Benzie Building together. These where the initial points of inspiration for this project. Another highlight around the prestigious building were the unique double height concrete pillars that feature a pattern by the early twentieth century designer Lewis F Day, a former tutor at the school. I intended to use this pattern to inform the level of detail and the aesthetics of the product.
