Once having passed the first stage of shock, and somehow once having gotten used to staying home, I think it’s now really essential to have a positive and constructive approach to this situation.  Our mental health is as much as important as our physical one and I believe that, by sharing opinions with others, by researching, by starting new projects, we can really face this situation in a better way.

As a start, we are taking the opportunity of a discussion between the Trend Members to create a podcast where we share some thoughts on what’s happening. Together with Ana Luiza and Marlon of SOMA_Studio Milano, in fact, we did some research about the Coronavirus impact on design and interiors, by replying to the members’ questions on this topic. In the podcast, we are sharing some point of views on how our industry may change and adapt because of the pandemic, discussing about our homes, new needs, environment and so on. We have also talked a bit about our own lockdown experiences and how we are coping with it in order to remain creative and mentally well.

This is the first of a series of initiatives and thoughts I would like to share in these “special” days.

Stay tuned on IB blog and on Instagram here, and let’s keep all positive and safe!
