These days, more than ever, seem to express an increasing longing to return: To normality, to times past, whether they were good or bad. The pandemic has left us conscious of how fragile our everyday lives are.
Born out of a persistent rejection to the collective yearning to erase the past year, this project, installed in a home-like living room of the late 1980s and early 1990s, acts as a time capsule of an era long gone. Gone, yet very much alive in the collective memories of the designers’ generation.
The past reanimates an illusion of an eternal present. Within this pleasant, familiar refuge, the futility of escaping into nostalgia will be fully revealed.
