  • _CASA CONTAINER_⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been talking a lot about microarchitecture in the past 12 months. I like to use the term ‘container society’ in my lectures.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also decluttering is a mayor topic since Marie Kondo and how to live with less.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Casa Container by @MaríliaPellegrini tackles several trends in one single project.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It shows more than clever use of space, material, and furniture. It’s an answer to contemporary needs of calm, decluttering, external cleanness to be able to focus on ourselves; topics widely and deeply discussed in our last Trend Report CEREMONY 2020/21. There is an increasing part of society that sees in a holistic well-being a new, more valuable form of richness and way of living.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
