Abstract:
Design is about imagining future possibilities and making things that enable us to live some of these possibilities. ‘Maybe the most fascinating thing about design is that it is a process that starts with a thought and ends with the world looking different’ says Stolterman (2007: 13). Design starts with the making of ideas – of possibilities and of problems and solutions (Schön 1983; Lanzara 1983). The ideas get clearer as they are formulated and communicated, concretized and tried out in detail (Bjerknes and Bratteteig 1987; Henderson 1999). The imagining of the design result drives the process forward.
