Each year, the Design Museum gives visitors the chance to see the work of young designers at the beginning of their careers, and this year's Designers in Residence exhibition is based around the theme of migration. The annual show is the culmination of a year-long programme which supports and nurtures four up-and-coming designers who have graduated within the last five years. The show includes specially created new work from the year's finalists and is backed by a series of events and talks, offering visitors the chance to meet the designers while giving them a test-bed for new ideas.

 

About Design Museum

In 2016 the Design Museum moves from is long standing home at Shad Thames to a venue three times the size, the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street. The Grade II* listed building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson to include the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge.
