Ed Warner founded the accessible design company Motionspot in 2012 after his friend and Co-founder James Taylor was paralysed in a diving accident and became depressed by the clinical design and poor quality of adaptations in his home. Ed has built Motionspot into a RIBA award-winning industry leader in accessible design helping to transform spaces and lives through beautifully designed, accessible environments that deliver independence for anyone with a disability.
Ed was appointed as the Government Champion for Accessible Design of Spaces and Products in 2019.
