Introducing Design for Our Times

Hear from the designers, artists and researchers leading the way in sustainable design for a less wasteful world.

Join us for a virtual studio tour travelling across Scotland, calling at Dundee, Glasgow, Fife, East Lothian and Edinburgh. Together we’ll dive into the innovative design processes showcased in Design for Our Times, our latest exhibition exploring sustainable design from leading creative practitioners based in Scotland.

Through a series of specially commissioned films, we will hear from:

  • Ffion and Steven Blench | Chalk Plaster
  • Aymeric Renoud | Draff
  • Maria Lander and Peter Large | Future Practical
  • Dr Sam Chapman and Professor Gabriela Medero | Kenoteq
  • Andrew Miller | Studio Andrew Miller
  • Lewis Harley and Simon Harlow | Mirrl
  • Catriona Brown | Shroom
  • The event will be chaired by Susanna Beaumont, Curator of Design for Our Times and founder of Design Exhibition Scotland, joined live by designer Catriona Brown, a recent graduate of Product Design Engineering at University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art.

    Design for Our Times runs at V&A Dundee until 19 June 2022. Free entry.
