Bring Me Sunshine

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Michael Marriott


A term coined by, or made famous by Morecambe and Wise, via a catchy jazzy-tinged upbeat tune with special accompanying dance moves. It’s a song and message that has stayed with me since childhood and surfaces occasionally, in conversation, or even projects. I once titled an installation, created for Tokyo design week, ‘Bring me sunshine’, that played on a continuous loop for the duration of the show.

Hello Sunshine!

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Amos Marchant


The idea behind this piece was inspired by the colours of the card received with the invitation letter for the project. The colour selection was a trio of randomly combined sheets from a range of ten, they suggested to me bright sunshine and shadow. It reminded me of a photo I had taken of my youngest daughter Elsa looking towards the sun on a lazy summer’s afternoon last year.

Working from the photographic reference, I drew a simplified artwork and hand cut the pieces.

There is an ambiguity to the title. ‘Hello Sunshine’ could be what the subject is thinking or what the viewer is saying to the subject, or both! It is a joyful celebration of life embodied in a young girl’s face in the summer sunshine.

The seat is part of a large-scale furniture commission that provides screened seating for the reception areas of the centre. I particularly like the tall single chair in the entrance area as its design encourages the user to look up and hopefully feel uplifted.

Paper Stacks – Interactive sculpture

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Oliver Staiano


Often I find the joy of living in the unexpected. Certain encounters, objects or places with an unforeseen quality can bring a small amount of joy to the everyday.

Here, G . F Smith paper has been transformed into solid objects. The papers were infused with a resin hardener. Colour is maintained but the end result has a physical quality like plastic or wood, a playful and unexpected tactility. That is why I have decided to leave this sculpture unfinished, or ‘interactive’. The pieces can be placed stacked, balanced or placed in infinite ways and they hope to bring joy to whoever uses them.

Seven Paints, Three Papers, 1

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Helen Yardley


Three coloured grounds seemed to demand “colour” as a response. Deciding to have the paintings work as a threesome, I deliberately restricted my colour palette to 7 colours and hoped they would work on all three papers.

Although I fully anticipated that the colours would appear to be very different on each paper I was both amused and fascinated at how curiously they behaved as I painted each one.

The format of the design is pretty simple and allows the weight and shape of each colour to sit or lean against the next shape: the spacing creating a rhythm that is comfortably uneven but still harmonious.

Picardy Tierce

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Lola Lely


‘Picardy Tierce’ brings dimension and volume to three simple sheets of paper—and in doing so, playfully expresses sentiments about the joy of living.
An entire sheet of paper was used to make each spiral. When suspended together these create a form that takes on scale, yet appears lighter and more vibrant than its two-dimensional base material. The spirals give the illusion of interconnection, which changes with the viewer’s perspective. They are mobile: variations in airflow cause them to subtly gyrate, creating patterns that are in a sense both transitory and permanent.

Time Flies

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Lee Broom


Time Flies represents life and how short and precious it can be. One must value it and make the most of it – every minute of every day.

It was created as a poetic reminder; firstly, to appreciate and live in the moment – to stop worrying, wondering and doubting and have faith that things will always work out in time, perhaps not how you planned but how they’re meant to be.

Secondly, to make time for all that is important. There will always be people we mean to see, things we mean to do, and words we mean to say and we can all too easily waste our lives meaning to do them.

Cerith is a parametrically designed sculpture inspired by the evolution of nature. Constructed from three sheets of G . F Smith paper interwoven into a hexagonal lattice, Cerith expands into a conical form similar to that of a seashell. Each hexagon is unique however the interactions and connections between neighbouring segments play a vital role in holding the structure together. Referencing beauty found in nature, Cerith is both elegant and inspiring whilst highlighting the perfection created by uniting a network of parts. The dynamic, almost animated, display of Cerith is a reminder that it is in life that we find joy.

Transforming the coloured paper from 2D to 3D form materialised through creating a lattice pattern which was then incorporated into the sun lounger.

Myself and my partner Orly discovered that our son Leon (5) is amazing with scissors at an early age. He doesn’t like painting (too messy) but cutting out is his thing. He likes big dress makers scissors if possible, none of those safety scissor devices they give you in school, so much so he even gave Orly a haircut recently.
We’ve been making pop-up cards for the last few months using amazing templates from the paper engineer Robert Sabuda and we thought building a little house for Maggie’s might be appropriate.
It’s pretty good. The roof needs a bit of assistance when you close it, but otherwise it works well.

This piece takes inspiration from the approach taken by Maggie’s centres where the different aspects of a person’s treatment, care and support are considered as a whole; integrated in a manner that places at the forefront their physical and emotional wellbeing. My response was to consider how to integrate the disparate coloured sheets of such that the individual colours, being quite bold, became less distinct; a texture rather than colour. The further I experimented with the paper, the more the idea of weaving them together showed promise and the final piece blends together fine, irregular pieces in a random manner.

In this work I wanted to combine my two loves, photography & weaving. I found in a TIME-LIFE book of the world’s wild places many beautiful photographs of majestic landscapes, but this one stood out. It was titled “September in the park”. I was intrigued by how this title didn’t seem to match the bleak beautiful landscape in the photograph. The coloured papers were suggestive of sun, sky and grass, and I wove them into the landscape in response to the title. The chance bringing together of these three elements makes a new slightly unexpected landscape.

Horizons

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Luke Pearson & Tom Lloyd


Our response to the ‘Joy of Living’ was to the colour itself, through which a sense of distance, light and dark and perspective began to emerge. The contrast between the tones evoked to us a sense of landscape, looking across an expanse of land towards the horizon and what lies beyond. Towards the light – sunrise and sunset, the start and finish of the day. The setting of the sun, like Cancer, stimulates sensations of both uncertainty and hope, that is completely universal.

It’s a paper bird, a kind of magical hummingbird.

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Katy Beveridge


I wanted to make a hummingbird as they’re so perfect yet so terrifyingly fragile. I have had close family members who’ve been helped by Maggie’s centres, cancer is something we’ve had to deal a lot recently in my family. The image of the bird came to mind almost immediately and I just built it from there.

The Authentic Joy Selector

Joy of Living 2017
Designed by Anthony Dickens


In “Authentic Happiness,” Dr. Martin Seligman; postulates that there are three paths to happiness: The Pleasant Life, The Good Life, and The Meaningful Life.

The Pleasant Life: Do something you love. Life’s natural highs

Happiness is primarily sought through the use of the senses: good food, fine wine, shopping, time off with friends, vacations, cars, houses, pursuit of things of this world, having as many pleasures as possible.

The Good Life: Do something that challenges your skills. Makes you grow

The good life involves a balanced focus on the three main areas of life: work, play, love. Happiness is attained by achieving competence, identifying and building on your core strengths to reach a flow state – a sustainable feeling of energized involvement and enjoyment.

The Meaningful Life: Live for a reason, a person or a purpose. Know your why.

Happiness comes from a deep sense of fulfilment by living for a purpose greater than oneself.

The pleasant life is obviously weighted toward the hedonistic. The chief disadvantage of the pursuit of physical pleasure is that we tend to quickly become habituated. Each new level rapidly becomes the norm and thus loses its allure. The three lives are not completely contradictory, and a balanced life can contain elements of all three. However Dr. Seligman believes that lasting happiness lies in progressing through each until we achieve the ability to have most of our happiness from living the meaningful life.
