rainbow stripes hug the floor and ascend to exposed windows at this cancer-fighting pop up

‘cancer doesn’t have to be something to be scared of,’ is printed on a midnight blue wall. beside this quote and other quotes, large black and white photos of inspirational people conquering cancer are mounted strongly to every surface. the photography, taken by zoë law and her studio photographers, is a part of a powerful exhibition called ‘life,’ at the lowry in manchester, and amid this exhibition, a bright space of many colors pops loudly — the rainbow maggie’s pop up, designed by ab rogers.

iconic maggie’s centers across the world use a design language that inspires stimulation and awakening. ab rogers echoed this theme with a continuous whirlpool of colors on the floor, which draws people together toward a cool center and reverberates out like a breath to warm pinks. the walls bounce those colors upward, toward a bright, open light.

this stimulating room at the lowry truly encourages the awakening of the soul and is accented with furnishings commissioned for the new maggie’s center at the royal marsden. the pop-up space, inspired by olafur eliasson and bridget riley, also features a ‘sound bath,’ which all together, alongside the exhibition of zoë law’s photography, captures the strength of those who were affected by cancer during their journey through life.
