A few months ago, we gathered got a few friends from around the world to tell us what quarantine has been like for them. From bird watching in Singapore to rooftop dance parties in Manila, their answers gave us an interesting perspective on what in isolation can be like. Now, thanks to Singapore-based creatives Sonali Ranjit and Vaishnav Balasubramaniam, we can get a glimpse into the work from home views of even more people around the globe with WindowSwapThe site quite literally lets you open a window to views from work nooks around the world through a very visually pleasing website.
