Universal cloud cover is a design company based in Glasgow, Scotland. Specialising in lighting, furniture and unique fixtures and fittings. Items are produced using traditional metal working techniques, pipe bending, welding, braising and soldering. All items are hand made, often from bare materials, such as mild steel, concrete, copper and plywood.
Conceived as a social enterprise with a strong design ethic, UCC aims to provide training and employment opportunities to individuals suffering from mental illness, drug and alcohol issues or homelessness, restoring skills in the local community through teaching simple manufacturing techniques. Skills learned should be useful in both home and work environments, enabling individuals to have greater choice and autonomy in their community.
UCC is directed by Kevin Smith, registered mental health social worker. Kevin has worked with disenfranchised individuals throughout both Glasgow and London since 2002.
