The Glasgow School of Art Shop stocks contemporary design products from students, staff and alumni which make up the 'GSA Collection', as well as commissioning award winning ranges inspired by the heritage of the School and it’s master architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Situated in the recently completed Reid building at the 'Window on Mackintosh' visitor centre, the GSA Shop provides design conscious shoppers with a host of covetable creative treasures.
Featuring over 40 exciting designers, from established graduate companies to new student makers, the 'GSA Collection' represents the wealth of creative talent emerging from the School.
Products range from fine silversmithing to quirky design gifts, original papercraft, luxurious textiles, bright travel accessories and sublime ceramics. Look out for exclusives, unique handmade one-offs and innovative uses of new materials and technologies.
Each year GSA Shop issues a 'Call for Collection' to uncover the new contemporary design wares by students, graduates and companies connected to the School. A unique opportunity to build professional practice, many products are designed and produced on campus.
Every purchase supports the School and GSA's next generation of budding designers, artists and architects.
