Week 42, 2020:

Brands spotted

This week, we've come across a gifting service that's promoting black-owned businesses, an apparel brand for women who weight lift, and a collection of photoshoot props that double as home decor items.

As countries around the world continue to seek the precarious balance between opening up economies and keeping their citizens healthy, we're continuing to see brands rethink the social experiences that we are used to. We previously covered the business of at-home eat-ertainment, while this week we've spotted a brand trying to tackle the absence of live music in our lives. New York company Oda has just launched with a high-quality speaker and a curated series of one-off concerts that can be streamed into your home.
