Scope and content
In 1952 it was announced that a prize fund of £5/5/0 had being made available to support a competition amongst the Design students for the commissioning of a new Board Room table. Significantly, it was agreed that the prize be awarded on the condition that the design “should be in keeping with the Mackintosh tradition” and “should be capable of being carried out economically”. The winning design was put forward James Stevenson Hooper, a third year student, and is probably the earliest known example of furniture being deliberately made in the ‘Mackintosh style’. The table remains within the School.
