common-interest
is a non-profit design research practice, operating at the intersection of knowledge production, exchange, and mediation. We conceive, organize, and produce texts, publications, exhibitions, workshops, events, and more. We use design as both a lense to critically look at the world, a tool to bring people together, and as a means to make socially relevant insights public. To us, design research is an activist tool for issue advocacy, collectivity building, and commoning knowledge. Our projects focus on social justice, untold and marginalized stories, and environmental issues. In all that we do, we strive to nurture and empower cross-cultural exchange and cross-disciplinary collaboration and are committed to a fair, transparent, and inclusive ethos of working.

Established in 2018 by longtime collaborators Corinne Gisel and Nina Paim. A more extensive website is currently in the works. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us or follow us on Instagram. A portfolio of projects is available upon request.
