Editorial: The Design Concept

Publications: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


In this volume of Artifact, we wish to explore design through the design concept, and thereby the societal praxis of designers through the theoretical concept of design. Design is praxis, but it is also formed by the way we frame the concept of design. We have endeavoured to give space for a rather broad range of contributors coming from both the many design disciplines and from surrounding fields in order to be able to show different angles on this subject matter. By focusing on the design concept and its different use in altering contexts, we want to open up for a discussion not only of the concept, but also and especially of the contemporary conditions of the disciplines it covers, and the societal contexts these disciplines have an impact on (excerpt from the Editorial).
