Welcome to the hybrid home, in which the bathroom has become a temple of wellness, the living room an online couch and the kitchen a lounge. Everything appears tidy and chic, perfect for social media. In the Instagram Age, even micro-apartments are mutating into semi-public places. In this book, Oliver Herwig portrays a society in the throes of digital transformation. Nothing quite fits anymore, yet everything must have its place. Welcome to the hybrid home. The German journalist Oliver Herwig has been studying the transformation of living spaces and dream interiors for years. The lines between work, leisure and rest have been blurred, as our homes become temporary, multipurpose work, fun and multimedia spaces; the office has invaded the home, and the world of smart shopping is always just a word away thanks to Alexa.
