Di x Mairi Millar

This year has been an incredible start for me, both in design as well as direction. I had the pleasure to lead Designer Island’s May interview, featuring Jewellery Designer, Mairi Millar.

“Art can be dangerous, even when decorous” (Bridget Quinn, 2017). There are two senses that strike the most when confronted with art: sight and touch. The former goes without saying, but ultimately we feel, though there is no physical convergence by art (and design)- and that is what makes it so very dangerous, as stated by Quinn.

We stand in awe at the confrontational force that lies within Mairi Millar’s work. It’s both rebellious and riveting. It’s the voice for all those who walk in vulnerability, but still, wear their strength on their sleeves, or in this case, their fingers, ears, and above their head. It is only fitting that this conversation is entitled, ‘Exhibitory,’ for the designs as well as the designer are far worth the exhibition.
