Touch, reflection and strength. How do our objects help combat isolation in a pandemic world? How can we foster a sense of touch in an increasingly virtual world?

Selected from Wallpaper’s annual Graduate Directories, 20 designers have been invited to think about their experiences of a pandemic world. Their projects have explored their own personal and cultural backgrounds with inspiration coming from everyday life as well as the desire to connect with nature and the outdoors. The result is a unique collection of fresh ideas.

The designers were invited to create a piece that represents the functional and emotional connections to our ordinary objects using sustainable U.S. hardwoods including red oak, maple and cherry.

The resulting pieces are one-off objects and furniture of varying scale imagined for a wide variety of settings and executed to the highest standard. All 20 designs will be on display in the Design Museum.
