Design thinking may be old wine in a new bottle or it may be new wine in an old bottle. The essence of the logic of Design is best exemplified by Simon(1988) when he states that while natural sciences are concerned with how things are, design is concerned with how things about to be. From an intuitive perspective, one could easily see that designing of “how things could be” is deeply connected to the engineering disciplines with or without user input (the necessity of user-input being a cornerstone in Design Thinking).
