This year we saw four trends: craft techniques that were translated into fairytale-like design in the theme ‘New Mythology’. “Democratic by Design” invited everyone to be a designer, while the romantic, futuristic theme ‘Regenerate’ takes us into the future. My favourite theme obviously was ‘Brutalist’ showing us the wild and raw side of natural design.
‘Brutalist’ showcased some familiar pieces I talked about on the blog before, favourite vases by Floris Wubbe, first discovered in 2014, see here Enlightened Design and also earlier this year when I showed you the amazing pedestals he made for Isabel Marant. Lamps ‘Roest’ by van Joost for Karven we used in a production for vtwonen:Styling van Joost | Bend the norm after discovering his work in Milan some years ago.
