The experimental design project 'The Kinship Method' took place at the Rian Design Museum in Sweden in 2018 and 2019. Through experiments, design therapy, and alternative methods, it shows how a practice-based project can grow knowledge and contribute to changing the designer role. It questions ideas of how design should be done and why a “fun revolution” is something to focus on. Five designers were challenged to break patterns in order to find new styles and methods. Each was tasked to individually design a chair, only to be infiltrated by each other’s forms in subsequent stages. With work by Margot Barolo, Erik Björk, Mia Cullin, Andreas Nobel, and Fredrik Paulsen.
