Designs for Living with COVID-19, from the Sublime to the Ridiculous
<p>We get it — the COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our lives, some irrevocably. Is the handshake gone for good? Is social distancing here to stay? And what about those darn masks?</p><p>All of that may be the least of it, if the creative, sometimes surreal, solutions to transmission of the virus featured in this slide show enter the mainstream. Many of these designs, incidentally, make ample use of plastics. Plastic <em>is</em> fantastic, as we like to say, but it’s downright fantastical in some of these flights of COVID-19-inspired fancy.</p><p><em>Image courtesy Production Club</em></p>
A plexiglass bubble that carves out a safe space for diners and the Micrashell full-body suit designed for nightclubbing and live events are among the sometimes surreal concepts put forth by creative minds as we navigate life in a pandemic.
