It is no accident that habitative spaces are lending themselves spontaneously to hosting offline the physical repercussions of the habitats generated by the digital ecosystem in which people live today. The need to share, that the social media have intercepted, finds its natural habitat in our homes.
Activities formerly only possible in public places (theatres, cinemas, hotels, restaurants etc.) become “deeper” relational and emotional experiences.
The dual remit rests on the new balances achieved by design capable of creating interiors and furnishings with adaptive properties. Thus, the rooms – such as the kitchen – that lend themselves best to socialising and to hybridisation with the “outdoors” are evolving in terms of both function and looks, just as the new customs and attitudes to sharing are redefining the organisation of spaces and user experiences of furnishings and accessories that respond to new attitudes and behaviours.
