Designers and artists are researchers, thinkers and practitioners that have the ability to make the intangible tangible. Changes and innovation are set in motion by people who believe that the world can be better or different. Open to different kinds of theoretical and physical explorations rather than by fixed expectations creative thinkers have the possibility to give a glipmse into a possible future.
Against this background In:Tangible aims to question how we as designers can reprogram our individual perspectives into a collective ethos. Formgivarpodden has asked previous podcast guests to contribute with a physical object and a written sentence that visualize each participant’s individual perspective on one or more of the following questions:
- Who will be part of forming the future?
- What is relevant to design today? For whom should we design?
- What activities do we want to pursue in the future, what activities don’t we want and what do we want to shape instead?

Sweden's only podcast about life as a designer and what it means. Every other week, textile designer Karin Olu Lindgård talks with industrial designer Kajsa Willner about topics related to design, often together with invited guests. The purpose of the podcast is to broaden the view of design and the designer's role in society today to the public, but also to open up a rather closed industry through conversations with different designers in different disciplines and genres who give their view of what design is, can be and should be in a contemporary context.
