Nº 276
Failure

Mar/Apr 2018

Order Magazine

The good news about failure is that it’s all relative. And the bad news, according to our author Mads Pankow, is that “failure [nonetheless] sucks”. In form 276 we attend to failure in design, in the market and in the digital world. We also ask Nils Holger Moormann where he stands regarding this well known, albeit reluctantly discussed, process.

Editorial:

Failure

Text: Stephan Ott

In 2009, Gary Hustwit entitled his film on (industrial) design, “Objectified”. Even then, that didn’t reflect the full extent of the reality of things. For a long time, it has also been – and today frequently solely is – projectified. That’s not a fundamentally new insight. After all, an entire art form, the film genre, has been based on projection for over a hundred years, and without imaging techniques some parts of the creative industry wouldn’t exist, such as the games industry.

The Strelka Institute in Moscow is a non-governmental organisation that since 2009 has been running experimental, multidisciplinary, and project-based programmes for students wishing to do urban design work and research. The current postgraduate programme is a speculative think tank dedicated to exploring “the opportunities posed by emerging technologies for interdisciplinary urban design practices”.

The staff couldn’t believe it: “Are you nuts? Can’t you talk about a different topic with form?” Some may be surprised to hear that we have chosen to talk about failure with a man whose company has been quite a success story ever since its founding in 1984. That’s because Nils Holger Moormann would not be who he is today by omitting the experiences of failure. A conversation about limits, luck, money, and creativity in failure, and whether success can be a failure, too.
