Abstract

It is here proposed a reflection about the contribution that the design discipline can act within the constitution of sacral objects, at the same time investigating the relation of this specific kind of artefact with the wider nature of design principles in general. By offering a standpoint about the importance of beauty and quality to be embedded since the very beginning in the design process, the statements will aid in the comprehension for the correct positioning of sacral design within the mass market and in respect to the constraints given by the credos. As well, other intangible aspects, such as trends and emotional values personally added, will be taken into account. Through proposing an overview over contemporary examples of what can be considered as part of sacral design and by understanding the reasoning of their birth, the purpose is to provide food for thoughts about the important matter of the relation between religion and design.
