Morag Myerscough artist & designer: I am born and bred Holloway, left home at 19, lived in various parts of London (always north of the river with one exception) ended up in Clerkenwell in 1990. I got bored of Clerkenwell, it had got too gentrified and I needed to live in an area that had diversity was still real, more what I understood. In 2005 I made the move down the road to Shoreditch with Luke Morgan. My work has always been my priority and immediately when I stepped into the building I live and work in now I knew this was what I had been looking for all those years, this was the place I belonged. I am a middle child and never had any space of my own growing up and this place gives me everything I have ever dreamt of. I am an urban being, I need to be in a place that has people in the streets, things happening, I like watching the changes, while embracing the parts that stay the same, the everyday inspires me and I have made the best work of my life since I have been living here. I have always had a westie dog, previously Fraser, Lemmy, now Elvis and this is a great way to get to know your neighbours. I love walking down Hoxton Street with Elvis saying hello and chatting to people on our way to Shoreditch Park where he meets all his friends. There is a crazy energy to Shoreditch that I love. #spacesintoplaces #elvismyerscough #photographer #hoxton #broncolor #sony #studiophotography #assocphoto #shoreditchlondon #shoreditch #glasses #hat #portrait_shots #artofportraitphotography #eastlondon #artist #portrait_ig #portraits_vision #portrait_vision #portrait_shots #fotograf #fotografía #fotografo #aesthetic #artistic #primarycolors #style #creative #londonlife #shoreditchpioneers #eastlondonlife

I am working on a new project for @artfelt_sheff @method_uk for Sheffield Children’s Hospital and I have been thinking a lot about how important arts interventions in healthcare environments are. How they can make such a huge difference to patients and families care and the working environments for the clinical staff. I have made several projects in hospitals and the feedback has always been positive and that is so rewarding. When I completed this ‘Colour Mood Tweets’ project in Linkoping Sweden two years ago people walking through immediately came up to me and I could see the smiles on their faces they said they had been hoping the white walls would change (swipe) and how the colour immediately made them feel so much better #wellbeing - - - #tbt ‘Colour Mood Tweets’ the commission took 4 years from start to finish. Over 200m x 3m = 600sqm + handpainted on FSC certified ply. Commissioned by AMpublic @magnusson8920 and Linkoping Hospital. Fabrication team with me — @lukemorganuk and Mark Wilding and the great team of painters who worked on one or both phases @hannahbroomdesign @natasha_nuttall @ruthharris22 @racheyvongrimm @itsgracekilpin @faheemgirach @sophiepickup @sophytwohig @biggsart @sarahbeany @suzie_foster_design @cat_powell @laurakatee_ @emwestcar @chloe_swayne @biggsart @laura_mills_x @mjturner15 If I have missed anybody off I apologise. @hangmen.studio install in Sweden . . . #moragmyerscough #moragbelonging #spacesintoplaces #hospitalart #art #triangles #geometric #colour #pattern #design #hospitalart #handpainted #interiors #architecture #ampublic #linkopinghospital #sweden #gallery

My happy dance today with @chic_under_the_sun and @anthea_fernandes at the end of an incredible three days of the Woman in Design 2020 plus conference curated by the Hecar Foundation in Mumbai 🙏@wid_2020plus for inviting me. Very honoured to have shared the stage with 35 incredible, distinguished women speakers and an incredible warm brilliant audience. I met lots of wonderful new people and learnt loads.

@lukemorganuk and I have made furniture for our other projects but not to this extent and with cushion seating 😳 I still can’t quite believe we built and painted all this furniture in our studio/workshop in Hoxton with help from a small team, all of last summer #2019. So many details to consider took months to get the cushions right but very happy we spent the time developing all the elements. FSC certified marine ply, metal and water-based paints. #permanent - Atoll, 1FA atrium, Broadgate London is my first permanent internal structural installation and is a new public space (not currently open at the weekend) link in my bio to @dezeen article for more detail. - commissioned by @britishlandplc at @broadgatelondon - 1FA building refurbished by @ahmmarchitects Planting @oasis_i_l _ Photography by @gardnergareth - - #moragmyerscough #spacesintoplaces #britishland #publicart #broadgatelondon #tiling #interior #seating #interiors #cafe #furniture #architecture #art #design

Atoll, London, 2019. With her first permanent internal strucutral installation, Morag Myerscough created a new bright public space for @britishlandplc at @broadgatelondon. Based on the principles of biophilia and the health benefits associated with spending time in nature, Atoll brings both color and plants to the lives of the office workers in a revamped office building in London's Broadgate. by @moragmyerscough and @lukemorganuk Tile production @thesurfacedesignstudio Tiling @polarbearlive Planting @oasis_i_l via @dezeen 📸 @gardnergareth #PLOTmag #repost #dezeen #atollcafe #moragmyerscough #publicspaces #designmag #contemporarydesign #installation #spacesintoplaces #britishland #publicart #designinstallation #broadgatelondon #tiling #interior #interiordesign #structuralinstallation #permanentinstallation #art #design #permanentart #biophylic #atoll #atollbroadgate

I don’t often get involved in designing products but last year to raise money for the @ilukuluku installation 2020 I designed a robe one of my favourite types of garment, I totally love them, great for covering everything up and instantly making you feel glamourous. - - Plus a bowl (shown) and cup for the Make Happy Installation in Hong Kong @pmqhkdesign #pmq元創方 - - background, panels from the ‘Belonging Bandstand’ 2018 @museumartcraft now living in my studio - - Photo taken by @lukemorganuk on my apple iPhone 11 max - #moragmyerscough #moragbelonging #spacesintoplaces #homeware #fashion #silkrobe #bowl #interiors #ilukuluku #2020 #tableware #iphone

my studio unusually ready for 2020 — I saved my money and had to buy this 12ft solid wood table 30 years ago from my first boss after leaving the RCA, Tim Lamb, Lamb & Shirley and owned the Shaker Shop in London. I was living in a bedsit at the time and not sure what I did with it until I had my first studio in the early 90’s and it has followed me around ever since having different level of prominence depending on the space. I had an obsession/addiction to furniture for many years at one point I had a hundred & twenty-three chairs but I am pleased to say the addiction has waned. #2020ready #bringiton #belonging #furnitureaddiction #home #wemakebelonging #moragmyerscough #studio #spacesintoplaces #interior

HAPPY TALK 📣🎼🎤Please turn your sound up 🎼📣– a snippet of the 6min soundtrack @lukemorganuk made for the MAKE HAPPY structural installation. First time we have done this for an installation and it was a great laugh to make.
