Whether we like it or not, social distancing is the sign of our times. Inspired by the chessboard, the courtyard of PMQ was covered by a colourful Chinese checkerboard pattern with conical, minimalist Christmas trees. The two-dimensional chessboard and three-dimensional cones worked together as an installation to change the way we see the open space, and while the decorative motif shows the new normal, the game-inspired decoration is festive and relates to people at a human level.
