This time of year has arrived again where a fresh batch of creative minds are unleashed into the world of design.
When we go to work something happens and we rarely notice, it’s a subconscious event that happens, a self-preservation thing. It would take an awful lot of effort, not to mention training & practice to stop, change or control. But, it’s the source of much low-level stress; not a ‘good stress’ type (although I’ve never really believed there is such a thing).
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.
Coworking spaces are a global phenomenon and are vastly changing the landscape of employment. According to the 2018 Global Coworking Survey; 1.7 million people will be working in around 19,000 coworking spaces around the world by the end of 2018; and we, at Scarlet Opus, are no exception.

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.
