Head to the Design Museum for imaginative and ingenious work as up-and-coming designers take up residency at the museum in Designers in Residence: Disruption.
Appearing for the seventh year, this annual celebration of design moves away from the norm. Four talented, emerging designers have been given the task of each running their own gallery within the museum. In their respective spaces, they have been asked to fill the area with the most disruptive ideas they can. With their imaginations free to run as wild as they wish, anything is possible with this thrillingly rule-free setup.
Among the highlights is Disruptive Housing, in which James Christian has created potential new housing models for the city, with the imaginary inhabitants added with comic book style illustrations. There’s also Disrupting Play, where Torsten Sherwood has created a new alternative to the typical construction toy. Patrick Stevenson-Keating and Ilona Gaynor complete the line-up with their own thought-provoking works.
Previous designers in residence have included the likes of Giles Miller, Asif Khan, Bethan Laura Wood and Simon Hasan.
