Here’s Why WFH Creatives Should Have an At-Home Drafting Table

frank lampard

There’s a good chance that as you read this sentence, you’re sitting at a desk. It’s probably a desk made for computer use, with a flat work surface, a comfortable amount of space for a cup of coffee and perhaps a few extras, like a power socket or a work light. The point is, to work efficiently and comfortably, it’s best to have the right tools, specifically a desk that was made for that purpose. That is why designers, engineers and artists use the best drafting tables in their work from home setups (and have for decades).

If you’re unfamiliar with a drafting table, they are versatile desks which feature an adjustable work surface, usually moving between 0 and 60 degrees, allowing you to find the angle which suits your comfort level the best.

As the Sars-CoV-2 virus continues to ravage India — the country now has the second-worst outbreak of the disease in the world, behind only the United States — many have begun to turn their homes into multi-functional spaces. The house, which has now turned into a school, playground and workspace, must cater to a variety of demands.

German manufacturing company Vitra recently published a “set of hypotheses” on the future of the home. Among the most radical of post-pandemic design implications was a so-called broken plan — hive off existing spaces to create new multifunctional spaces for family members.

“Now that we are spending more time at home and having to share that limited area with our cohabitants, we need to work on optimising the available space. Partitioning off or zoning our interior between various activities and people, or during different times of the day,

COVID Homebodies Set the Tone for Future Home Design

frank lampard

SAN FRANCISCO—For better and for worse, home is the center of life/work/shelter during COVID. But during quarantine life, homeowners have come up with definite ideas about home design.

Several million new households are projected as a direct result of COVID-19, with an additional 7.6 million switching from renters to homeowners. Not only that but the definition of home itself is in the midst of a historic paradigm shift, as are the specific home features people want and are willing to pay for, which provides a competitive advantage for builders and developers going forward.

The America at Home Study surveyed thousands of consumers and the insights show that homebuying is not only top-of-mind but more in demand than the industry had anticipated. The survey was developed by three leaders in the homebuilding industry, Teri Slavik-Tsuyuki, principal of tst ink; Belinda Sward, founder and chief strategist at Strategic Solutions Alliance; and Nancy

HE became a household name through hit TV series 60-minute Makeover when he brought families’ dreams come true with home transformations.

And as people spent more time at time at home during lockdown, interior designer John Amabile was able to give a little back to his followers and fans. He set up a facebook forum which has become an inspiring and supportive community for budding interior designers and a place to share tips, advice, laugh at disasters and help people try to avoid them.

“Going into lockdown I think, like many people, I wondered how we were going to get through this,” said Amabile. “I am lucky I had my garden and studio to retreat to rather than just stare at four walls. I wanted to do a project to keep me sane and I think people saw their house and home and wondered what they could do themselves. Changing
