Material innovation for our contemporary age.

Today we face many urgent issues caused by climate change - designers in Scotland are tackling these issues head-on.

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.

Often it takes one individual with a great idea, plus tenacity and time, to create real change. 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.

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

The show illuminates the design process - from incubating an initial idea, through the trials and errors of prototyping, towards production - and features a range of ideas and projects at different stages of development.

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