From layering to weaving, a language based on exploring relations, showing growth patterns caused by environmental feedback, which makes sense, becomes unique, authentic because they are in dialogue with the ground, the site, the neighbourhood, the local materials industry and crafts, politics and economy… It is not a pure language, it’s hybrid, multiple, dirty and crystalline at the same time…

Siv Helene Stangeland spoke on ‘Relational Design’ as part of Design Directions, at the Design Museum, London, in 2017.
