A design exhibition in an empty high street shop will launch this week as part of Dundee Design Month.
The display on Reform Street, named Factory Shop, opens to the public on Friday and will display four designers’ work for seven days.
Among the show pieces are prototypes and products made by the designers in factories as part of the Dundee Design Festival’s factory residency programme.
Exhibition curator Siôn Parkinson said: “The shop has been taken over by UNESCO City of Design Dundee and the exhibition is a culmination of a year-long residency programme that paired the designers with manufacturers across Scotland.
“Instead of producing something for the manufacturers, the designers have made something for themselves.
“The idea wasn’t to produce finished objects but to show the design process and the steps involved in it.”
Some of the exhibits include objects made from medical glassware, tapestries made of leftover yarn from the manufacture of rugs, and a transductor, a type of magnetic amplifier.
Anna Day, manager of Unesco City of Design Dundee, said: “Our aim is to improve the city and people’s lives through design.
“What we’re trying to do is involve people in design through exhibitions, workshops and discussions.
“The Factory Shop aims to bring some life into the street and we hope that we would be able to keep the space for future projects.”
