Vaccine ampoules and FFP2 masks are not the only objects that stand for the year 2021. We think there are other things that can tell a story: about ideas and forms, our everyday life and its spaces, about the present and the future – and about the people who create all this. The Living in a Box Collection gathers international contributions from designers and artists.

Impfstoff-Ampullen und FFP2-Masken sind nicht einzigen Objekte, die für das Jahr 2021 stehen. Wir denken, es gibt noch andere Dinge, die vieles erzählen können: von Ideen und Formen, unserem Alltag und seinen Räumen, von Gegenwart und Zukunft – und den Menschen, die all das gestalten. Die Living in a Box Collection sammelt hierzu internationale Beiträge von Designer*innen und Künstler*innen.
