Design Exhibition Scotland is a pioneering project that celebrates exceptional objects and ideas for the everyday. DES celebrates experimentation, excellence and exploration, making visible through debate, curated exhibitions, conversation and public advocacy, the energetic brilliance of the many contemporary designers and artists working across Scotland today. Design Exhibition Scotland strives to be an effective and ambitious champion of both resolutely contemporary design and time-honoured craft.
Launched in 2018 by Susanna Beaumont, Design Exhibition Scotland has presented two showcases of design to a wide public audience – DES 2018 and DES 2019 along with DES Debates at Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh. In April 2020, Design Exhibition Scotland launched DESign ONline.
