In May 2023 ‘BAUX – The Bright Future of Wellbeing’, a travelling exhibition of student work and Acoustic Lounge, came to London for Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) an annual festival of design.
For the buzzy East London event attended in 2023 by over 37,000 visitors, BAUX commissioned British Designer and Artist Morag Myerscough, to work on a design for the exterior of the installation. The exhibition was created originally for Stockholm Design Week and designed in collaboration with BAUX Co-Founders ‘Form Us With Love’.
Morag Myerscough was approached for her use of colour and a leaning often toward geometrics within her work. Morag’s installations and immersive spatial artworks are intended to transform places and champion community, as well as public interaction. This ethos of intentional engagement and visual statements mirrored the aims of BAUX in bringing people together and creating a dramatic structure, at a festival recognised for a strong sense of community and creativity.
Morag was given BAUX Wood Wool tiles in all 9 shapes to play with and was invited to work also with custom colours. Eventually settling on 8 custom colours and 2 from the standard range, a bright and adventurous colour scheme and interplay of shape, saw perhaps the most ambitious use of BAUX to date with the installation becoming without doubt, the highlight of CDW2023.
We spoke to Morag Myerscough about her work, inspiration, and use of colour.
