The Design Museum’s annual Designers in Residence programme provides a platform to celebrate new and emerging designers at an early stage in their career. The programme is now in its sixth year and is a core part of the exhibition programme demonstrating the Design Museum’s commitment to support and encourage new design talent.

'This year, the Designers in Residence 2013 programme will explore of how design in any field can be used to convey, to create, or to reflect a sense of identity.' -Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum.

The 2013 Designers in Residence are:

ADAM NATHANIEL FURMAN| Adam is exploring the concept of identity through a cabinet of curiosities containing products made entirely from 3D printing and Slip Casting. The project follows a fictional journey of an individual’s intimate and obsessive search for identity.

Adam has charted the development of his residency on his blog Identity Parade which is on display at the Design Museum. He is kindly being sponsored by Lee 3D.


EUNHEE JO | Eunhee’s research looks at the surface quality of things. During her residency Jo will develop new surfaces made of fabric or paper which will be embedded with technology. Jo will use this embedded material to create a light and Hi-Fi system that offer new possible encounters with what we regard as everyday items and in doing so creating new aesthetic possibilities.

Eunhee will be documenting her residency via her blog, Surface Matters. She is being sponsored by: Plus Sejung -Audio, Philips Lumiblade, Kvadrat - Lighting, cloudandco - Audio, Plus sejing- Audio, SetaS- engineering.


CHLOE MEINECK | Chloe is developing a memory box to be used by people suffering with dementia or memory loss. Seeking to create an alternative therapy for patients Meineck’s memory box can be used by individuals and the families of those who have a confused or fading sense of personal memory and identity.


THOMAS THWAITES | During his residency Thomas is looking at how personal data collated through use of the Internet can serve to inform people about themselves and their own identity. His research draws attention to contemporary use of the Internet and the effect it has on the individual and society. He has created a series of products that might be used to help change our behaviour.
