Abstract

This paper is part of a research into the history of unruly design, which aims at finding theoretical background for the design of everyday things in a postmodern society. Unruly design is defined in this research as: all objects that are designed with the intention to undermine the existing design-paradigm of the functionalists. The paper will present the research background, research approach, and findings in the form of the first five design practices that have been identified as a set of ‘rules of unruly design’. These five rules of practice can be considered a toolkit for the contemporary designer to make meaningful objects.
