Dana Finnigan’s Lovely Loos a First in the UK

New Zealand-born designer Dana Finnigan’s design company, which is based in Glasgow, prints “lovely loos”, wallpaper, fabrics and ceramics. Finnigan, 33, produces £2000 toilets and sinks with every inch covered in her own, bright designs.

She is the only person in the UK producing printed toilets and sinks.

Finnigan said: “I only launched them a couple of weeks ago but there is already a lot of interest.

“Nobody else in the UK is doing it, so I have got the monopoly – I can pretty much print on anything.”

The artist expects most of her pieces to be sold to hotels, restaurants and bars but says home owners may also fancy a different look for the smallest room in the house.

Finnigan’s is one of 10 creative city firms which have won cash from Starter for 6, Scotland’s premier start-up and investment programme for creative industry entrepreneurs.

Finnigan is a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art where she studied textiles.
