From a rocking chair for snuggling pensioners to an environmentally-friendly skateboard made from grass, the weird and wonderful designs of Edinburgh students are to go on display.

The annual Edinburgh College of Art Postgraduate Degree Show features the work of more than 50 graduating artists working in a range of disciplines, including contemporary art, architecture, jewellery, interior design, costume, animation and illustration.

Among the creations this year is an anti-consumerist board game, a bedtime toy that uses light, touch, sound and scents to help insomnia sufferers, and work inspired by Glasgow indie band Belle and Sebastian.
