The home has forcefully returned to its status as the center of life. Social distancing, forced cohabitation, the rise of hybrid multitasking spaces, have made us think about future innovations in domestic settings. There is an urgent need to live well inside the home, determined by greater awareness of who we are and our role on the planet, which we have neglected. The home is thus seen as a proving ground of activities and thoughts that confirm the meaning of our being in the ‘here and now.’ Exploring philosophies of life and the use of innovative technologies, new frontiers of nutrition and care for the spaces in which we live. For a new kind of wellness, across the board.
