The intention of the 100 Archive is not just to present contemporary design, but to discuss and contextualise it. We want the site to be a place to consider design from a range of perspectives and for people to begin to better understand design and its potential through our work. In order to do so we have brought together a team of contributing writers and editors, tasked with exploring design, within and beyond the discipline, and within and beyond Irish shores, through interviews, case studies, features and more. Their work has begun appearing on the site in the past couple of months, with much more fantastic content planned for the rest of the year. Without further ado, here’s our amazing team!
