How much design and technology connect people is especially evident in an age of social isolation. And because of the time we spend at home, the focus on creativity has come from the so-called “Do It Yourself” or do-it-yourself approach – in all aspects of life. These are, of course, kind of amateur interventions, methods of building, modifying, or repairing without the direct help of experts or professionals.
Corona made us change our lifestyle and slow down a bit with certain activities. This virus has limited our movement and socializing, leaving us a lot of time for ourselves.

Yes, we can do anything, but what about rainy days, those when we can’t get out of the house, but we still feel that we have an incredible amount of energy that we have to focus on something?
