"… design should pay renewed attention to human values like poetry, knowledge, culture, but also to our basic needs in relation to contemporary challenges, like housing, mobility, clothes, food and water. Design can bring about new visions and alternative solutions for our everyday life, simultaneously allowing crossover collaborations for the production of knowledge that can be shared. From this perspective, the designer is no longer an all-powerful creator, but a part of a network or community of society and form. In other words: not the world of design, but the design of the world should be at stake, an enterprise that starts at the core of everyday life."
Boelen, Testing the Everyday.
