Abstract

The  paper  proposes  an  approach  of investigating routinised  practices  in relation to  deliberately  creating disorder in everyday routines and practice theory. Further, it outlines a pilot study that uses the design­led method of 'probes' and considers its potentials  in generating disorder. It identifies creative disorder in the process of designers developing the probes, participants interacting with them to finally designers receiving the results. Thinking about the process in terms of disorder is seen to be valuable in facilitating, applying and developing probes, not only to inspire the designer but also to sensitise the designer to private and intimate areas of everyday life such as hair care.
