What will life look like after the pandemic becomes history?

This is a question we often ask ourselves, our friends, family and colleagues at work. A crucial fragment of this answer depends on how we will move forward with our routines and lifestyles. Our homes and workspaces have now become way more than just a momentary place of shelter, transforming into spaces of holistic living. At the centre of this lifestyle is a host of design solutions that advocate adaptability and innovation in this new, anomalous world where each one of us must try to lead by example.

The Park Elle Decor Student Contest is an enterprising, socially and environmentally conscious design-led initiative of ELLE DECOR India in collaboration with The Park Hotels. In its 10th year now, the primary goal of the contest is to recognise and promote the young batch of talents to think out and beyond the box and produce product designs that tell a tale of the current world we are living in—the post-pandemic hour.

The products built with purpose, sensitivity and viability towards the post-COVID-19 world will get the opportunity to be showcased at India Design ID 2022 in New Delhi, India from May 12-15 2022.
