At a time of rapidly changing social norms, growing political divides, and environmental concerns, we are finding new ways to live, work and play together. Discover the impact it will have on our homes and workplaces as we explore more collaborative and eco-friendly lifestyles.
A multitude of ways to connect in times of social distancing and quarantine.
Due to Covid-19, we had an exploding desire to make our direct environments a comfortable living, working, active, play, and social space. We have found a multitude of new ways to connect and be intimate in times of social distancing, quarantine and working at home. Designers are leading the way to find technical and sustainable solutions to this new era where there is a total blur of the use of spaces.
