DesignTO 2021: Work/Life
constantly redefined, the boundaries between work and life were drastically altered by the pandemic.
Work/Life has a whole new meaning.
For those of us able to work from home, 2020 has pushed the boundaries of living and breathing
Work/Life. Every household object has become precious. Products in our home morph to have multiple
uses. Our scrutiny of products — what they do and what we need — is heightened.
Drawing upon these conditions, Work/Life invites designers to explore what design will be in the coming
year. How can we evaluate a “new quality of life” through prototypes? Consider opportunities for multiple
functions, storage, space efficiency, personalization, dual utility, entertaining, and other hybrid and
micro-living concerns. The exhibition invites designers to think about the whole environment that we live
and work in, and welcomes creative responses to the theme.
Deadline: all submissions are due Friday, September 25, 2020 by 11:59pm EST. Click here to learn more and submit your work.
