Daytrippers! is a collaboration between V&A Dundee and Local Heroes that supports designers by commissioning collectable, limited edition souvenirs.
We’ve christened 2021 ‘the year of the daytripper’ and we’ve worked with contemporary designers based in Scotland to create products that will help to make your window boxes into a mini-paradise for local wildlife; or are perfect for a trip to the beach and a picnic in the park.
Kate Scarlet Harvey, Lauren Morsley and Katie Smith have each designed a bold and beautiful beach towel that will bring a burst of colour to your beach or poolside presence. Fiona Moon, Klara Sormark and Shweta Mistry have each designed a bespoke seed box featuring native wildflowers that support local wildlife, from Angus-based Scotia Seeds.
Aymeric Renoud of Draff worked with Martin Baillie to design custom mobile displays. Two iconic Christiania Copenhagen cargo bikes have been carefully adapted to display our special commissions. Come and see them for yourself as they traverse the V&A Dundee plaza, where you can find out more about the designers from our friendly ambassadors and purchase your own collectable souvenir.
Opening hours are Thursday to Monday 12 pm to 5 pm (weather permitting) but may be updated during summer. The last day of the project is Monday 27th of September.
The Daytrippers! collection are all limited editions and are available exclusively at V&A Dundee plaza or at the V&A Dundee Online Shop
