For many of us, the abrupt, non-voluntary requirement to stay inside for a couple of months is a perfect time for reflections. Newly introduced regulations have made our daily lives more difficult and clearly showed in practice that the world we live in is not ready to face critical situations. Residential buildings, shops, hospitals, workplaces and schools turned out to be completely ill-prepared for the world affected by constant change. Could that have been prevented? Could we have predicted todays challenges in our designs?

Over time, timeless aesthetics and durability have turned into mass production and temporary trends.

To what extent do designers create items and interior to last longer than a single season?
