Exhibition: Design For Our Times

Material innovation for our contemporary age

Discover how designers are developing ingenious solutions, using unexpected materials in new ways - from biodegradable mycelium, to spent grain, to construction waste.

Design for Our Times offers sustainable solutions to overconsumption and material waste through the innovative work of selected designers based in Scotland. It is presented by Design Exhibition Scotland, a pioneering initiative that celebrates and supports exceptional designers, fresh ideas and new possibilities.

The exhibition showcases researchers, creators and makers - all driven by a desire to make a difference: to question established norms, challenge the use of time-honoured materials and think anew about a product’s life cycle and impact on the planet.

Come and join the discussion about designing a less wasteful, more sustainable world.
