Designers in Residence is the annual residency programme, run by the Design Museum, which celebrates new and emerging design talent. Now in its fourth year, the residency supports the selected designers at an early stage of their career, allowing them to build on their current design practice and develop new or existing work. The Designers in Residence have a bursary to support the development of their career and guidance in creating a new piece of work for the exhibition.

Selected through an open-call for applications, the finalists were asked to respond to a brief to consider the idea of imperfection either in an object, environment or experience.
