The production of design-oriented knowledge cannot be dealt with fruitfully based on traditional epistemology. In this paper the concept of design artefacts is suggested as a possible backbone in a future design-oriented pragmatic epistemology. It is claimed that a general understanding of how design is mediated is a necessary first step in understanding the use and production of designoriented knowledge
