Issue 01



The first issue of Obliquite focuses on new types of design practice, be it a happening, performance, installation or game. Seven international designers have been invited to expand on the themes and questions at the heart of their explorations, through essays and interviews. Together, through their common points as well as differences, they make up a group which will allow us to shed light on a refreshing new approach. Performative or narrative, this group questions not only what design is, but also what the creation process can be. This issue, by gathering and confronting these practices, supports their potential for becoming paradigm shifts.
