Back for another year the Designers in Residence at Design Museum invites you to see what's new and exciting in the world of design, as four young designers spend six months developing their latest projects. Designers in Residence at Design Museum Taking up residency at the Design Museum for the latter half of 2013, this is a chance for emerging new talent to build on their current design practice, develop existing work and gain invaluable support from the staff at the museum. Selected from an open competition, the finalists are showcasing their work at the Design Museum from 4th September, on the subject of identity. Disruption Taking inspiration from disruptive technologies could be a good bet for all the Designers in Residence at Design Museum this year as they take up the theme of disruption. With various different factors affected by economy, they face the challenges of getting to grips with the generally negatively viewed term for their design work. Disruptive is a term whose meaning is dependent on the context and conventionally considered a bad thing. Now disruptive design has become the hottest thing since sliced bread and it has completely overtaken the previously well regarded term sustainable. New for 2014 This year the Designers in Residence are being asked to reflect on and explore the multiple possibilities expressed by the concept of disruption and the disruptive. Covering products, furniture, graphics, spatial and interactive designs, the designers are set to explore the nature of identity throughout their residence at the museum in 2014/2015. Creative thinking This year's Designers in Residence at Design Museum will come from a variety of backgrounds and have worked in different materials in order to make their most of their varied skills and experience whilst in residence at the museum. Soon to be chosen by the specialist panel, the designers for 2014 will be announced soon. Talks and events Not only is the work of the designers on show throughout their residence at the Design Museum, but they are also set to become involved with the museum's programmes of events and talks. During their time in the museum, the designers in residence will also help to curate the late night openings where visitors can take part in workshops, hear from celebrated designers and get up close and personal with the latest exhibitions. The Designers in Residence at Design Museum takes place from Wednesday 10th September 2014 - Sunday 8th March 2015.
