Clara and Adrian form design duo Special Projects. They’ve caught the design world’s attention with 'Missing Pages' – three tongue-in-cheek manuals designed in the style of flat-pack furniture, which aim to remind people how to take care of each other. They discuss how to put fun and a sense of magic back into good design.
