Pamela Flanagan

Pam graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2000 with a BA Hons Interior Design, and she has been teaching within the Interior Design department across both Undergraduate and Postgraduate cohorts since 2013.

Pam’s discipline based research interests are centred in her industry experience and specialism of Fashion Retail Interiors and experiential Brand Environments. Her professional background encompasses global brands to bespoke interiors, working on diverse projects from commercial retail, exhibition, residential and leisure environments. From 2000-2005, Pam was a designer at Imagination on events and exhibition design for Ford Motor Group and Nike. In 2005 she joined Brinkworth employed as an Associate Director. Responsibilities included concept development, furniture prototypes, detail construction and documentation of brand guidelines for global retail roll-outs. Clients included Allsaints, Alexander McQueen, Biba, Heineken, House of Fraser, Mary Portas, Moroglio Fashion Group, Selfridges, Supremebeing and Whistles.

Pam is interested how the evolution of Interior Design has manifested within our everyday encounters of the built environment. Interior Designer fosters an interdisciplinary approach that can challenge the boundaries of art and design via spatial installations that confront the contemporary commentary of the thresholds of interior design. She is also interested in the phenomenology, sensory and ephemeral qualities of constructed and re-appropriated spaces in which we occupy.

For her PG Cert in Supervision, Pam has been looking at the interaction of research in commercial interior design practice; how academic research can input into industry and build interior design specific theoretical research. She is keen to explore other creative outputs that circumnavigate the perception of what Interior Design entails.
