Craft Design House will work in collaboration with design partners based in Scotland on a range of items to “reflect and celebrate” the distinctive style of the Glasgow-born designer and architect.
A new app will accompany the launch of the Mackintosh collection, enabling people to trail his life and work.
Gillian Scott, founder and chief executive of Craft House Design, said: “This new collective work will be selected from multiple disciplines; textile, ceramic, glass, furniture and jewellery as well as cross-discipline collaborations.
“To accompany products, digital and content narratives of the design inspiration and process are provided, reconnecting product with process and customer with creator.”
