Protosophical design enthusiast

My name is Johan Redström, I am a professor in design at Umeå institute of Design. I’m a design researcher with a strong interest in emerging design areas and practices, especially if I get to combine experimental design

with a bit of philosophy. I defended my PhD thesis called “Designing Everyday Computational Things” in 2001, and given that my latest book (together with Heather Wiltse) is about “Changing Things; the future of objects in a digital world” it is obvious that some interests have remained part of my work for quite some time.  But overall it is really about design research as a way getting to know what is potentially possible beyond what we at first might think is likely.
