Design Museum explores theme of disruption this winter.

LONDON, August 04, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Design Museum's Designer In Residence 2014 exhibition will explore the theme of Disruption as the annual event enters its fourth year. The exhibition encourages four rising designers to take over a gallery at the Design Museum in London Bridge and fill it with their most disruptive ideas between 10th September 2014 and 8th March 2015. The museum is located on the Thames near London Bridge, where it is close to some of the best restaurants, shops and hotels in London. For more information about London Bridge and to book rooms in London hotels, see LondonTown.com.

The four designers that will feature at the Designers In Residence 2014 exhibition are James Christian, Ilona Gaynor, Torsten Sherwood and Patrick Stevenson-Keating. Each has responded to the theme of ‘disruption' with a specially developed project, showcased for the first time at the Design Museum. These will include looks at housing, featuring hypothetical housing models for the city; law, exploring the eccentricities within the judicial system with props, drawings, maps and models; play, presenting an alternative archetype for the construction toy, moving beyond the familiar building brick and offering new possibilities in the form of simple cardboard discs that overlap, bend and join to create forms in an almost endless array of combinations; and finance, q uestioning our use of financial technologies with a new cash machine, currency and devices for credit card payments.

Alongside the Designers in Residence 2014 exhibition will be a series of events including sketching tours, designer talks, and evening socials. For more information on this exhibition as well as other exhibitions at the Design Museum, see LondonTown.com, London's best website for tourists seeking the best and most up-to-date information about events in London.
