Scotland is home to outstanding design and this February G&V and Local Heroes are proud to present five Scottish designers who have created items perfect for gift giving during the season of love. Each of these special commissions is available for purchase inside the hotel and online.
We commissioned some of Scotland’s most interesting and successful designers to create exclusive products for Local Heroes 2016. Their work collectively represents a striking period of contemporary design in Scotland characterised by a renewed confidence and optimism. Local Heroes leaves behind stereotypes about the Scottish design aesthetic and emphasises the modern approach of contemporary designers who embrace bright colour, dynamic pattern and innovative techniques and materials.
