“Design usually tries to insinuate itself seamlessly into the world. Cutlery attempts to mould itself into your hands. A mobile phone seems so vital that life cannot be imagined without it. But what would design be like if our possessions disordered us? Would we feel differently about the grip that things seem to have over our lives if they were 'unnatural' or behaved in unsettling ways? These are the premises on which the designs – exhibited here and conceived by their designers as Disruptive Thinking – are based. ”
David Crowley, Humanities, Royal College of Art
✦Disruptive Thinking was set up as a platform for debate in the commercial context of 100% Design 2009. Hosted by Designersblock, the show introduced the work of recent graduates from Design Interactions (Royal College of Art) to a large number of visitors and successfully managed to highlight new approaches to design thinking. The show included work from myself, Will Carey, Thomas Thwaites, Nelly Ben Hayoun, Vanessa Harden, Nicolas Myers, Nitipak Samsen, Hayeon Yoo and Kellenberger-White.
