The Design Does book is a collection of essays that explore and question the purpose, responsibility and impact of design in today’s world.
The essays in this volume, written by experts in their respective field, address the diverse ways in which design responds to the pressing challenges facing our society. They prompt us not only to contemplate the impact of design on industry, culture and society, but also to consider the potential it holds for the future.
Design Does is a long-term, interdisciplinary project at Elisava. In addition to this book, the project also produced an eponymous exhibition, co-curated by Elisava and Domestic Data Streamers, at the Barcelona Design Museum in 2018.
