all around the world, the coronavirus pandemic has inspired artists, designers and creatives alike to come up with wonderful ideas that help and bring together communities. the internet has proven to be the thread that keeps us connected, with people sharing files to create 3D-printed respirators and others teaching us how to cook.

the latest initiative that caught our attention is led by new york-based spatial designer eny lee parker who believes that ‘during shitty times like this, it’s important to do our best as humans to keep sanity, be kind to one another and keep good vibes going.’ parker asked people to create with clay their ideal room in a miniature scale, making it an immediate internet success.
called clay play, the contest by eny lee parker was launched on her instagram account with the designer showing her ideal miniature room. the space featured both pieces designed by her and by other existing designers and artists like jean arp, mauro fabbro, imi knoebel and noguchi. the competition received nearly 50 submissions that recreated modernists designs to a yayoi kusama-inspired mirror room.
