Made Together Apart

The onset of Covid-19 has significantly changed the way people live, interact and work. Connected is an experiment set out to explore how creatives and makers adapt their processes using new technologies to work together at a distance and often operating from new, improvised home offices.

9 Designers
3 Hardwoods
1 Workshop

Nine international designers have been challenged to create a table and seating that suits their new ways of working from and living at home, recording their creative journeys to give us an insight to their approach during these challenging times.

Each designer will be paired with a craftsman at Benchmark’s workshop in Berkshire, relying solely on digital communication to develop their pieces and bring their visions to life remotely.
