Everyday practices in a range of public and private settings have been the subject of research and reflection in anthropology, sociology and education; such practices exhibit both routinized and individual behaviors. Examing everyday practices from a design perspective is less well developed in the literature. As contribution to the practice turn the concept of everyday design is proposed as practice that builds conditions and structures for everyday activity. This practice is not limited to pragmatic action but also embraces cognitive processes. Gathering several theoretical and empirical findings we offer a conceptual framework that presents purposes, subjects, objects and processes of everyday design.
