Risotto Studio is best known for their vibrant graphic t-shirts and calendars. They also create murals, interiors, swimwear and installation, working with retailers such as The Conran Shop and Liberty London. On a local level, Risotto print paper goods from their zero-waste workshop in Glasgow.
Risotto’s Riso Room will run at The Lighthouse between 23 March and 13 May, bringing eight weeks of colour and all manner of printed material to Mitchell Lane.
There will also be workshops from leading international print designers such as France’s Atelier Bingo, South Korea’s Corners and Wobby Club from the Netherlands (the first time these three groups have made such as visit to Scotland), poster nights and two party nights.
People attending the workshops will also have the opportunity to print their own designs.
Councillor David McDonald, Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “This promises to be a fascinating and fun exhibition from an emerging Scottish design studio which has made an international impact. The series of events running alongside the exhibition will be unmissable for many people interested in print and design.”
Risotto designer Gabriella Marcella said: “From a design perspective, I’m always looking to push the boundaries of our work, and the opportunity to exhibit at The Lighthouse has allowed us to play with scale; building a dream print studio while experimenting with bespoke Risograph wallpaper. All over pattern is something that excites me, and I hope visitors will feel the same way when they visit the exhibition. This will also be the first time the international guests have delivered workshops in Scotland, which will offer locals a chance to learn from world-leading Risograph experts, and see artworks from all over the world.”
