In The COVID-19 Era, What Do We Need From Our Homes?
Our desires are linked to our emotions that are influenced by our environment. The current pandemic has emotionally increased and changed our priorities. Jaye Anna Mize, Vice President, home interiors at Fashion Snoops, Charlotte Delobelle, Head, Paris’ trend agency, and Carrera Kurnik are two emotions that have defined our crisis response and driven our new requirements: fear and gratitude, isolation and inspiration, fear and empathy. Jaya Anna Mize has been the head of the Paris trends agency’s office.
In the course of the Maison & Objet Digital Fair, which was held last September, after COVID-19, they presented their findings in a lecture entitled Information&Intuition: Anticipating New consumer needs. Based on important data from newspapers to keywords, hashtags, searches, and sales of products, participants have learnt how these emotional requirements transform into new interior requirements and how excellent design can contribute to addressing new challenges.
It wasn’t home what it was. Because of the lockdown and epidemic, it has become a business, school, a gym, a playground, a restaurant, a hostel and a place to relax and relax. As a result, our interior, for instance modular and flexible pieces, needs more flexibility. “This pandemic made people really think about their needs,” Mize adds. “This makes goods more responsive to various situations our top priority.”
Indoor air and water free of pollutants
Before COVID-19, we became more aware of the importance of clean air, but since we spend more time at home, we have really taken it as a priority. The homeowners look for all ways of improving the quality of indoor air, such as non-VOC or other contaminant-generating furnishings, air quality sensors and air purification treatments. “Many filtration systems work like ecosystems and bring the exterior inside,” explains Mize. This is also the case for the drinking and bathing water filtration.
Desinfecting products and materials is the third item on the list.
Indoor hygiene is another major problem. “How many of us have rethought our daily work at home to make it healthier in general…. Mize says that disinfection, which is in high demand, is among the most innovative areas.
This includes antimicrobial products and textiles for both children and beds, coloured soaps when you wash hands for a long time to complete and components such as door handles that can be self-disinfecting.
