Beyond the New Agency of Things

Louise Schouwenberg & Hella Jongerius

Koenig Books, 2018


Design theorist Louise Schouwenberg examines the meaning and agency of things as mediators between people and world, both within everyday life and the museum context. Moreover, she questions the marketʼs obsession with novelty in design, and searches for answers how to distinguish novelty for the sake of novelty from true cultural innovation in design, of which a museum archive testifies. The themes, examples and images are chosen in close consultation with designer Hella Jongerius.
