Designers in ResidenceEach year, the Design Museum holds its Designers in Residence exhibition giving visitors the chance to see the work of young designers at the beginning of their careers. The annual show is the culmination of a year-long programme which supports and nurtures up-and-coming designers. This year's show includes four UK-based designers who are challenging convention bringing a new approach to housing, highlighting loopholes in our judicial system, creating a new playful den-building mechanism for children and exposing the ethics of global financial systems. New works are specially created by this year's finalists and the exhibition is backed by a series of events and talks giving visitors the chance to meet the designers while giving them a test-bed for new ideas.

 

About Design Museum

Located on the banks of the Thames, the Design Museum has two floors and showcases contemporary design in all forms, including fashion, graphic and architectural. There are two main galleries, and the collections trace the history of design developments, from the origins of mass production to contemporary works. More about Design Museum
