Fast life

The fast pace of life has changed people’s relationship to time. With ever-busier lives due to long working hours and a kind of ultra-business, time is getting shorter and shorter. Brands and retailers are thus redefining their products and services offerings to adapt to the speed of our modern society. They do so by answering a growing demand for instantaneity, bringing convenience and practicality while creating ephemeral products and places.
