Abstrakti

The tension between artistic expression, the ideal product, and the inevitable compromising that is required through mass production has been powerfully verbalised and illustrated by two world famous designers from geographically distant design cultures: Kaj Franck (1911–1989) and Enzo Mari (1932–2020). Both designers speak about design priorities and essential functional forms with a purpose. Both 'moralist designers' have been named ’the conscience of design’ by their colleagues for their critical voices on design practice expressed towards a professional environment, which had become too superficial. What does conscience mean in design cultures today? Is a superb moral backbone sign of a ’design inquisitor’ as Alessandro Mendini wrote on his Domus editorial “Dear Enzo Mari” 40 years ago, when he defined him as the conscience of the professional community?
This study on two critical ’thinking designers’ (considered important for their moral messages on design ethics, a responsible way of working and communicating in design) is a part of a comparative study on design approaches in two different design cultures.
