Morris Associates was established in 1987 by Colin Morris with the support of Lord Palumbo to provide expertise in museum and exhibition design. Since then, the company has expanded and now offers clients a complete design service.
The result of this collaboration was substantial investment in well-equipped design studios and an experienced team of designers and support services. From this foundation, Morris Associates provides a broad spectrum of design, management, and technical capabilities, which together allow the company to create and test innovative designs in-house in 2D & 3D, and to undertake any individual element of a project from feasibility and concept design stage, through manufacture to its completion.
The company has strongly resisted the temptation to expand beyond its current scale in order to maintain its reputation for high quality in each discipline and to develop and maintain personal contact with each client.
Morris Associates has undertaken projects for recognised museums, galleries, visitor centres and private companies. A variety of international clients have provided a diverse range of commissions, that have enabled the continuous development of new ideas and techniques, as well as the opportunity to establish two smaller satellite studios. To compliment its abilities, close relationships have been built with other professional highly respected in their fields. Their areas of expertise include Architecture, Cost Control, Installation, Interactives, Lighting and Public Relations.
