ACME "Roses" Business Card Case - design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh
CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH was born in Dennistoun, Glasgow in 1868. He attended evening classes at the Glasgow School of Art from 1883 to 1894 and this undoubtedly had a stimulating effect on him, with the influence of fellow apprentice James Herbert MacNair.
In 1896, Rennie won the competition to design a new Glasgow School of Art, and this building is still acclaimed as one of the most significant buildings of the past century. Which was just one of the buildings won him enthusiastic acclaim in the U.K. as a pioneer of modern architecture. His furniture designs are recognized internationally as “Design Classics”, and his architecture is now considered extremely influential in the context of architectural history.
