Join us to chat with designers, artists and researchers at the forefront of material innovation for our contemporary age

Design for Our Times showcases seven projects offering sustainable solutions to overconsumption and material waste through the innovative work of selected designers based in Scotland.

Come along to meet the researchers, creators and makers behind these projects, and discover how they are questioning established norms, challenge the use of time-honoured materials and are developing ingenious solutions, using unexpected materials in new ways - from biodegradable mycelium, to spent grain, to construction waste.

Hear about their design process - from incubating an initial idea, through the trials and errors of prototyping, towards production.

Drop in to ask questions and join the discussion about designing a less wasteful, more sustainable world.

You’ll be able to meet and informally chat to:

Ffion & Steven Blench | Chalk Plaster
Aymeric Renoud | Draff
Maria Lander & Peter Large | Future Practical
Dr Sam Chapman & Prof. Gabriela Medero | Kenoteq
Andrew Miller | Studio Andrew Miller
Simon Harlow | Mirrl
Catriona Brown | Shroom
Andy McGregor | Exhibition Graphic Designer


Design for Our Times is on until Sunday 19 June 2022. Free entry.
