Ewan is a designer and maker specialising in material flows and the circular economy.

He is currently completing an MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art, where his work has focussed on the production systems that define products and their footprint, and on how cities can move towards local, circular manufacturing.

Recent projects include furniture made from waste marble from an industrial site, designed for the neighbouring housing development; and a series of lamp designs that would automatically adapt to whatever metal offcuts are locally available at a given moment.

Prior to this, Ewan worked for the design engineering consultancy Filament for 2.5 years, where he was the lead designer on products ranging from a coffee machine for M&S to a novel electric wheelchair for start-up Freedom One.

In 2014, Ewan graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a 1st Class MEng in Product Design Engineering. Upon graduation he was awarded the Napier Prize for “Best Design Graduate”.
