HuMatLab researches design across disciplines through participatory processes of making. We call this approach “stellate design” or “stellate innovation”, per application of geometrical procedure of stellation—in the synergistic sense of design principle explication and structuration (see: Osseo-Asare & Abbas, 2015; and Osseo-Asare, 2018).
