In this small essay I will explore the notion of the design value of business. Interpreted as merely a play with words; such a statement may be regarded as a bearer of little value. But; taken as seriously as the more common question; what the business value of design is; it turns into a critical examination of basic conceptions of what design is for. It also paves the way for the critical claim that design value precedes business value.

Keywords: Design; value in use; business; strategy; embodied cognition; situated cognition
