RADDAR, the first Franco-Swiss annual publication devoted to research on design, was founded in 2019. It takes a new step forward with this second issue, whose theme reflects the omnipresence of design in our life-styles and environments.
We invite you to take some time to read this new issue, which presents work by a number of European scholars. In their contributions our authors invite us to reflect on the subject of interior design and the issues – including the paradoxes – which this field may bring together.
RADDAR provides a space for both young and experienced researchers to express themselves on subjects relevant to design theory. Juxtaposing bilingual versions of the texts, RADDAR serves as a bridge between French and English-language research.
With texts from Michela Bassanelli, Valérie de Calignon, Irene Cieraad, Elias Constantopoulos, Deborah Feldman, Laurence Mauderli, Philippe Rahm, Patricia Wheaton and a cover by Marc Camille Chaimowicz. An original text by Penny Sparke, reproduced in English and translated into French. And a joint interview with Graeme Brooker et Javier Fernández Contreras, led by Marco Costantini and Claire Favre Maxwell.
