Curator Meredith More explores the Glasgow Style, one of Scotland’s most influential contributions to design history

A Scottish interpretation of the international Art Nouveau Movement, the Glasgow Style was developed from the 1880s to the 1920s by a group of radical young designers at Glasgow School of Art, led by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Margaret Macdonald, Frances Macdonald and Herbert McNair.

This talk will look at the characteristics and impact of the style with reference to objects in the Scottish Design Galleries, including the magnificent Oak Room.

Hear from a range of speakers and discover the little-known stories of Scottish design with international impact during our Lunchtime Talks. Don't forget to bring your lunch!
