  The Design Museum has announced its plans for the next Designers in Residence programme, now in its 6th year. An open call for entries has been launched, with designers invited to respond to a brief set up museum director Deyan Sudjic relating to the concept of 'thrift':

 

 'It is more difficult to design a product worth £10 than it is to design the same product worth £1000. The limitations of economy require resourceful, inspired and intelligent use of material and processes and a successful project is often a more creative and fully resolved outcome. We invite product, furniture, graphic, spatial or interaction designers to explore the idea of economy and resourcefulness in an object, an environment or an experience for their Designers in Residence 2012 proposal.'

 

Applications are invited from designers have graduated from Higher Education within the last 5 years and are currently resident in the UK. Proposals must be new work or a development of an existing project. Full details on the application process can be found here:

  Previous Designers in Residence have included Giles Miller, Asif Khan, Freddie Yauner and Will Shannon.
