Designers in Residence 2015: Migration
The Designers in Residence programme at the Design Museum is a core part of the museum's activity, and exists to provide practising designers, across any discipline, with time and space away from their regular environment to reflect, research and consider new ways of developing their practice.
‘This year's Designers in Residence programme invites four designers to respond to the theme of ‘migration’. It can be a reflection of objects or processes that imply movement, or transition, of shifting and cross-fertilising cultures, or of mobility.’- Deyan Sudjic, Design Museum Director
