Ranulph Glanville probably did the best job of connecting cybernetics and design. Shortly before his death in 2014 he gave a wonderful talk called “How Design and Cybernetics Reflect Each Other” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTN_9mJIWNw
In this talk he explains the concept of circularity as being at the heart of cybernetics. IMHO circularity is central to designing, at least as we need to do it in our current society.
