Upcycling and upholstery specialists Fun Makes Good have created a site-specific installation and pop-up shop inspired by The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse isn't actually a lighthouse, but Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture, aka Glasgow's exhibition hub for art and culture.

The exhibition aims to draw the viewer into a tactile and playful environment, both decorative and functional. Or at least that's what the organisers say. After having a look at the exhibition, I can honestly say it is definitely whimsical; it took me about five minutes to work out that I was looking at a pair of chairs.

As well as being a centre for the culturally hungry, at the top of the building, visitors can enjoy unrivalled views of Glasgow via the Mack Tower. It seems a visit to The Lighthouse will be both an opportunity to mooch the Fun Makes Good exhibition, and take full advantage of the birds-eye view of Glasgow.

The Lighthouse is housed in the former Glasgow Herald building, the first public commission completed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
