This time of year has arrived again where a fresh batch of creative minds are unleashed into the world of design.
We are kicking off Monday morning looking back to our Trend Hub feature at the Exclusively Housewares & Exclusively Electrical 2018 Shows in London. At the show Scarlet Opus outlined 2 key trends for kitchenware in 2019 getting specific about important color palettes, smarter material use and the global food direction that is affecting consumer purchases and lifestyle choices.
Clerkenwell is one of London’s premier design districts, their annual festival brings together innovative designers from all around the world with inspiring one-off installations, exhibitions and events.
The sun relentlessly beats down on me as I write this post, most of us (people) are enjoying the 3rd mini-heatwave of the year; it’s hard to keep in mind that it’s only Tuesday and a work-day. Everything about today is screaming chill, relax, eat, drink, smile, enjoy and do all of this outdoors. I’m doing my best to comply, after all nature’s driving influence today has reminded me about my favorite design trend for the SS2018 and compelled me to share it with you.
The perfectly imperfect way to welcome a simple, authentic and natural style of living.
Now is the time to search for the beauty in the disorder; gently expose weaknesses and reveal new strengths. This trend explores resilience and recovery when things breakdown; it is a quest for truth and realness. At its core is ‘Wabi-Sabi’ – the Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in imperfection and the art of ‘Kintsugi’ – repairing damage and breakages with precious materials.
The International Surfaces Event in Las Vegas is the one place to be for all stone, tile and floor covering professionals. We were delighted to be a part of the design and curation of The Design + Installation Showcase Hub AKA The DISH; with hands-on live demonstrations, inspiring trends and educational talks. Incase you missed the show… here is a preview of ‘The DISH’ and the theme behind our design.
