The Flexible Space
Designers, architects and planners are applying their ingenuity to adapt to the challenges coming from the rise of the urban singleton, that force city living spaces to be much smaller. They are optimising available space with flexible studio apartments and work-living spaces with transformable furniture and adaptable spatial configurations that change at the push of a button. Pre-fab structures and portable furniture are coming to the fore, reflecting an increasingly footloose mindset driven by experience over ownership.
The Healthy Space
Living in cities, we spend most of our time sealed away from the great outdoors, so the indoor spaces in which we live, work, learn and relax have a profound effect on our wellbeing. Consequently, designers, architects and materials scientists are increasingly looking to innovative design features which enhance our health, happiness, mindfulness and productivity.
The Re-Made Space
In order to contend the massive mountains of urban trash generated by multi-million populations, in the future, people, in general, will need to let go on the difference between waste and resource so as to create a more sustainable world. Undoubtedly, trash can be the starting point to re-create something and turn it into a new and sustainable space or design. Several ideas and initiatives are providing a glimpse of how we could build urban environments more sustainably as time goes by, and as a matter of fact, designers are trying to discover efficient ways to reuse what we already have to create re-made spaces.
The Marker Space
Inspired by the internet’s disruption of communications, the rapidly growing Maker Movement is revolutionising the meaning of manufacturing. Having the potential to change the nature of production, – due in part to the democratisation of digital fabrication technology, which allows anyone to create their own items – this trend is leading to a popular vision of the future city as a place of self-sufficiency. Cutting-edge technology and hands-on practical skills will enable civilians to better themselves.
Design + Colour Trends
Relax / Recharge
Colour can affect or mood and emotions. Colour can energise or calm, relax or stimulate, even anger or subdue – contrary to popular belief, it has been proved that blue light can energise and red light can calm. Relax/recharge is a transformative design direction that harnesses the power of colour to bring energy balance to over-stimulated, urbanised lifestyles.
A return to the artisanal and the crafted sees the emergence of a perfectly imperfect design direction. For instance, Indigo is one of the oldest dyes in the world and has been embraced by a wave of contemporary brands and designers, as they revisit the craft of indigo dyeing, thus celebrating the imperfections and graduated hues of this deep shade of blue. As a whole, the direction speaks of historical revival in print and pattern and classic durability by way of workwear-inspired functional twill.
Fabric is subtly multifunctional and adaptable. It can be moved from space to space to lend a sense of home to new environments. Soft Minimal focuses on interiors and products that offer beautifully designed, simple, elegant solutions that are timeless. Repelling the idea of excessive decoration, this trend is all about creating products composed of intelligent material combinations that complement their functionality.
Adapt + Assemble
Most suitable for the nomadic living, the Adapt and Assemble design trends demands furnishings and fabrics that are made to move. Modular designs incorporate simplified joining and construction methods for easy assembly. They are made up of geometric, linear interchangeable forms in fabrics that can be packed away for travel. Textile techniques are kept simple and honest.
We have an inherent connection to the natural world, yet we are living increasingly urban and digital lifestyles, further and further removed from natural habitats. So as to change this result, numerous designers are increasingly responding to ‘nature deficit’, for example, by using various shades of green, seeing that this colour is one of the most restful tones to see and it is also known to replenish, nourish and energise our minds and bodies.
