In this series we will enjoy a glimpse of the working environments of designers, architects and directors and discover what can we learn from how they work and the objects they work alongside.
In our third post Katerina McMahon, Morgan‘s Design Director, gives us an insight into her working space and highlights 3 objects.
‘Mac screen background: a photograph I took in Noto, Sicily in 2015 while on holiday. Beautiful architecture and stone detailing, this photo was taken from the back of the 18th Century Cathedral in order to include the hilltop view and capture the setting.’
‘A 1930’s fan, which unfortunately I have never tried to repair, but which I bought from a junk shop when I was a student and still love.’
‘The chair, the most important item! An Eames aluminium chair in black leather, which I bought second hand after I graduated and could never possibly replace! An original Herman Miller from the 1970’s.’
During Clerkenwell Design Week, Morgan will launch two new collections and host a series of events at their showroom on Dallington Street, EC1. The chosen theme for this year is ‘Underlying Geometry’. The main product launch is the GOODWOOD collection, designed by Katerina Zachariades and inspired by mid century freeform shapes found in art mobiles and hand carved timber sculptures.
Throughout Clerkenwell Design Week Morgan’s showroom will be transformed into a neutral geometric haven, British artist MARK McCLURE will be transforming the main wall with a commissioned installation, exhibit architect Chris Eckersley’s intricate architectural sketches, inspired by Le Corbusier buildings and The Modular and STAGE ONE, will be giving a talk on ‘Making on a Macro Scale.’
