The Design After
Two decades after entering the new millennium, design is still living a moment of recognition, expansion, integration, seduction and, why not, power! Design has transcended the realm of the tangible becoming a form of thought permeating different processes. But how new is it? Are designers reflecting on its decline? What will happen after design? Upon reflection, all disciplines live by cycles. Design leads to placing emerging issues into debate, without fearing experimentation of languages. Don’t forget that design is a discipline born in a particular historical and social context which goes hand in hand with modernity. If modernity continues to reveal its cracks, it wouldn’t be worth discussing what comes after design? It’s about being razor-sharp and responsible: how would the world be like, after design?
