Krippendorff Discusses Design with Columbia Newspaper

Category: 

Remarks regarding human-centered design delivered recently by Pofessor Klaus Krippendorff before the Universidad de Bogota Jorge Tadeo Lozano in Colombia are highlighted in an article in Elespectator.com. In the article, Professor Krippendorff notes that designers are “the agents [responsible for] change in the continual renewal of the material culture of the society.” “The idea that ‘form follows function’ […] has changed radically in recent decades,” Professor Krippendorff said. The article notes that designer is now “someone who understands the social situations in which objects are made to play a role, and this includes the creativity involved in the use of these objects.”
