Sometimes second prize isn’t so bad. Hanna Emelie Ernsting has received second prize at imm cologne in the International [D3] competition for young designers. Her work is spot on for my some of my moods today.

Ernsting’s concept –

Nowadays the separation between work life and private life is further disappearing in multiple ways. The spacial separation blurs out due to the fact that more and more people are using home offices – either for their own small business or because they are taking work home from the office. It seems that for many people it becomes more and more difficult to separate work life and private life emotionally. After everlasting working hours, the never ending expectations of perfect appearance and the constant need to function, people forget to calm down and how to let go. This has certainly become one of the major problems of modern society.
