London’s Design Museum is introducing its 2012 Designers in Residence – five young designers whose work will be showcased at the museum for the next five months.

This year’s residents are Freyja Sewell, Harry Trimble and Oscar Medley-Whitfield, Lawrence Lek and Yuri Suzuki. They were selected via an open call, for which they were asked to respond to the idea of Thrift while exploring the economy and resourcefulness of an object.

Their resulting works will be on show at the Design Museum from today until 27 January, 2013. The exhibition space has been created by Asif Khan of studio Pernilla and Asif, a designer quickly gaining popularity following his involvement in the Olympics - and himself a Designer in Residence in 2010.  

The residence supports the young designers and allows them to build on their practices. The exhibition will display the development in their work over the coming year.
