This issue will approach the topic of sacred with an open and enquiring mind. If it is true that design has its gurus and sacred moments, we are interested in observing what is valid even of the venerable masters, not entirely rejecting the past because it is sanctified, and enquiring whether the topic of sacredness is linked necessarily to the creation of dogmas. A desecrating interpretation at all costs can equally be seen as a dogma.
The sacred remains interesting even outside the secularization of the gaze: what is sacredness in design and in our lives today? Are there any designers who have brought new meaning to the idea of sacredness?
