We designed the cover for Mix Interiors issue 204, with inspiration from the part of life we’re all missing most: normalcy.
A lot of the design and build industry is focussed on defining the new normal post-coronavirus – we’ve recently written the guide to workspace during COVID-19 and an office reintegration checklist to help companies get there. The industry’s future-focus, while necessary, has made it feel as though the “new normal” is something we could be chasing for quite a while.
During a time when normalcy feels like a luxury, ordinary objects begin to present a curious sense of beauty. When we were asked to design a cover for Mix Interiors, we were immediately drawn to the sense of normalcy most of us are craving. We incorporated the Mix logo in the stitching on the back of a Hitch Mylius chair in homage to the everyday objects that make up the fabric of our lives.
