Briggs & Cole “Art + Design Works”

Briggs & Cole “Art + Design Works” is a Glasgow based Design Studio founded in 2012 by Glasgow School of Art graduates Jane Briggs & Christy Cole.

Embedded within each product or project, there is an exceptionally unique collage work which involves a high degree of complex layering. Every design piece tells a story – made by hand in the studio using a variety of processes which have been developed in direct response to working with specific materials on projects which enliven and captivate the person(s) it’s being made for and surrounding environment. These range from working with clients / partners within residential interior design, stores and installations as well as bespoke furniture production.

Special Art / Design / Interior Projects
For something quirky, luxurious, collectible and exclusive, Briggs & Cole offer a coveted and expertise design consultancy service focusing on the creation of high end, “one of a kind” pieces. Working closely with esteemed fabricators and artisans in the UK, Briggs & Cole are committed to finding new materials and techniques which enhance the integrity and desirability of our products. Working with select manufacturers is important because of a mutual understanding of what the design project is pertaining to achieve – which material, form or finish will differ in detail but each will end in a result where the client has been part of a collaboration to create their piece. Recent examples include highly coveted one off functional art  / furniture design commissions to creating bespoke exhibitions about Heirlooms and the role of design led objects.

Among their last projects and commissions:

– Temperance 3/5: this collection consists of 5 unique one off pieces (Glass Vase, Mirror, Brass Plate, Large Table, Fabric Hanging). The collection was housed within the brand new Reid Building (Design School) designed by Steven Holl Architects for The Glasgow School Of Art (March 2014). The overall integrity of the ‘Temperance 3/5’ collection was to create bespoke, hand crafted pieces which repurpose the materials, ideas and approaches to design, art and architecture through sequenced driven voids and interior geometries of space.

– “No_Line_No_Wave” exhibition: Pavement Gallery at Graven’s design studio launched with an exhibition from Briggs & Cole. Devised and curated by Jane Briggs and Christy Cole, the exhibition is called “No_Line_No_Wave”. The curators asked the participants to design their own unique scarf taking into consideration the theme, but also as a functional, wearable item of clothing. The result is 12 highly individual designs, which can be appreciated individually or viewed collectively as part of ‘No_Line_No_Wave’. The designs have been inspired by a range of influences, from Paolo Nutini and The Smiths, to the Barrowlands, cubism, rhythm and musical patterns.
