We have released our Autumn/Winter 2016/17 Pinterest board; PLAY. This board will give you all the inspiration you need from product styling & pattern trends to color stories, stationery and fun merchandising ideas. A perfect trend for this spring!
This trend is about a yearning for freedom, a desire for community and to build a more sharing society, overall there is a need for life to simply be… more fun!
It’s attitude is rule breaking, it is not afraid to be re-inventive, humorous, playful (escape from the world’s serious issues), interactive, engaging, optimistic and collaborative.
Objects and patterns are organised into bright geometrics and sometimes surreal compositions. There is a mix and match concept with a modern memphis influence, patterns that compliment but also break the rules… Commercial directions see designers combining different elements of color blocking and the mixing of matte and gloss surface effects.
Urban interventions, customisation and personalisation are important elements associated with this trend. Interior products that enable consumer to design their own; for example create their own color ways to match their interior, or products that have a playful element to them such as the cabinet with magnetic shaped pieces.
