The Design Museum On Loan

The Design Museum On Loan 
Designers in Residence Alumni Showcase

The Design Museum is building the world’s leading museum devoted to architecture and design and will reopen its doors in the former Commonwealth Institute, in Kensington on the 24 November 2016. 

Join the Design Museum in the Project Space at London Design Fair for a celebration of the annual programme Designers in Residence. 2016 is the ninth year of the residency, which provides a platform to celebrate new and emerging designers at an early stage in their career. Alumni include Asif Khan, Bethan Laura Wood, Giles Miller, Yuri Suzuki, Tomas Alonso and Sarah van Gameren. A timeline, originally designed for the Design Museum by Martino Gamper and Bibliotheque and adapted for The London Design Fair, will look back and celebrate the alumni, revisiting the work that has been commissioned over the years. The display will introduce this year’s selected designers, who are currently developing new work in response to the theme ‘Open’, which will be revealed in a designated studio as part of the opening programme in Kensington. The display will also announce the theme for 2017, inviting the next generation of designers to apply and be part of the Design Museum in its first year.
