THE KINSHIP METHOD

Experiment, design theraphy and alternative methods

 

Dare we explore our inner designer? How strongly tied are we to our individual style, how is our ability to give and receive? This is an experiment and study of methods on alternative design production and how this may be one of many ways changing the designer role. Five designers are challenged to break patterns in order to find new styles and methods. It starts individually with the designing of a chair each, only to be infiltrated by each other’s shapes in the following two stages. Each chair moves on to the next designer, who in turn must use 20-40% of the chair’s form elements for a new chair. Consequently, fragments, pieces and artistic expressions are inherited from the previous generation. Everything is done under time pressure and with no insight into what the others are doing. There are now three generations with a total of fifteen chairs that are related to each other. Each generation of chairs is followed by a group discussion where we reflect on: What happens to the style and design? What happens within us? What can we learn? Does it create diversity, development or conformity? And most of all: is the project of matter to question the structures within design production?


The project is owned and initiated by Margot Barolo. Supported by Beckmans College of Design. The project examines methods and design production and is a sub project to the project "Design as a mean".
