When it comes to respectful co-operation and the way in which resources, employees, and clients are treated, the current state of affairs is far from ideal. Fair manufacturing conditions in the production of smartphones or textiles, correct declarations about the emission levels of cars, the equitable distribution of food products and even the admission (and consequent acting) that the current refugee crisis has been largely based on decades of exploitation – remains a dead loss. But what does this have to do with design? Almost everything, in fact. Any attempts at creating innovative products, responsible education, or aesthetic research have long been taken ad absurdum due to the fact that global businesses still put design second to the maximisation of profit, even when it verges on fraud, and sets its priorities accordingly.
