"Good timing, fast acting: the ingenuity of Mediamatic shines out with this project. With Serres Séparées they have responded in an accessible way to a complex topicality, with a focus on what is possible, not what isn’t. The transparent cell placed within a public space is a solid concept, with a highly symbolic value for this covid-era. The design itself could have been stronger, but the implementation and knowledge sharing have served as a guide that led to a great deal of international attention and imitation, making it an easily accessible life hack. Mediamatic shows how you can use design to tell a story about isolation versus connection, and does it tongue-in-cheek."
