Design research and the literature on sociomateriality emerge out of different academic traditions but share a common interest in the material. A sociomaterial perspective allows us to account for the complex ways people mingle and mangle information systems of all sorts into their social endeavors to accomplish organizational tasks. But, how do we account for these sociomaterial phenomena in all their complexity when faced with the task of designing information systems? The panel brings together prominent researchers bridging the gap between design research and the current debate on sociomateriality. Each presenter addresses the challenges associated with informing grounded design work with insights from a highly abstract intellectual debate.
