Ed Warner is the co-founder and CEO of Motionspot, an interior design company that has made it its mission to design beautiful and enabling environments for everyone – for people without disabilities as much as for people with a wide range of cognitive and physical disabilities.
In this conversation, Ed and I talk about access for all and the nuanced and often unexpected hurdles that mean public and private spaces remain closed to a large share of the population. We consider the colour scheme of the London Underground, design as a means to reducing social isolation, and why accessible bathrooms need not look like hospital loos.
I really enjoyed talking to Ed about his work at Motionspot. If you are interested in access, design, and innovation, this episode is for you!
