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. ACME Studios was founded in Los Angeles in 1985 by Adrian Olabuenaga and his wife, Lesley Bailey. ACME made its first appearance with a limited edition collection of jewelry designed for them by Peter Shire, the LA-based member of the world renowned Memphis Group. Soon after the initial debut, ACME released a large collection of over one hundred pieces, MEMPHIS DESIGNERS for ACME, with the help of writer Barbara Radice and designerarchitect, Ettore Sottsass. Many pieces from this collection are now in the permanent collections of museums around the world (the Denver Art Museum and Brooklyn Museum of Art in the United States). The entire series is in the permanent collection of the Groninger Museum in Holland.   Mirror chrome metal finish inside and out Unique epoxy image applied to the lid Card cases hold 12-14 business cards, or 2-3 credit cards Measures 3.75 x 2.25-inches
