Following conversations with RCA colleague Kyla Elliott, and then Design Museum director Alice Rawsthorn about the lack of critical debates in design lectures, we created a debate series that ran monthly at the museum’s lecture space. Observing current issues in the design community, we set a provocative question every month and invited a panel of four design professionals to bring a brief view on the subject. They kicked off the conversations that were then open to the audience. We kept numbers small (around 50 people) so that we would have an intimate environment and interesting conversations flowing. Questions ranged from “What isn’t Design?” to “Is Irony killing design?” and the panel included speakers such as Kenneth Grange, Jane Dillon, Tony Dunne, Marcus Fairs, etc. Kyla and I curated and moderated all the events.
