Glasgow. Timorous Beasties and One Foot Taller met in 1995 in Glasgow. We've been friends and collaborated on various things over the years, even though I moved to France and have been running One Foot Taller from afar since 2007. I planned a March trip to Glasgow in order to do some work with the Glasgow School of Art, meet with designers clients and manufacturers in Scotland. So... we decided to get some of my work up with theirs in the new Timorous Beasties Shed space, - a beautiful and industrial showroom, big enough to celebrate the scale of their work. We chatted a little as they got the space together so it was lovely to see it in action at the end of my week there.
On a rainy Friday evening the other week people wandered in to see that TB wall-coverings and fantastic upholstered furniture were shown in full glory, illuminated here and there by One Foot Taller clusters of lamps and suspensions. A great night in the Shed and a lovely way to see the pieces complimenting each other. Sometimes intricate, sometimes bold and always impressively interesting, the surface patterns on show from Timorous Beasties provide a beautiful and rich environment for calm and elegant lighting to float within. It’s a joy, after all this time, to see our products working together as well as ever.
