This discussion offers the analogy of journeys of exploration to illustrate the difference between a priori and contingent approaches to product design. It is argued that much contemporary design adopts the former approach, while sustainable design requires more consideration of the latter. Terminology, conventions and expectations of industrial design are questioned with respect to the priorities of sustainability, and alternative ways of considering design are suggested, so that new responsibilities can be incorporated.
