  • The Abbey 205 E 16th St New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

The circle is a potent social symbol of inclusiveness and togetherness; of a universal vision on our planet and our milky ways of life. The rounder edge of materials will deliver design for a softer and more harmonious interior and the round shapes of lighting will be emanating in a softer fashion, as if they possess an aura. Form will be further pushed to a perfected sphere with round tables, round stools and round carpets. In the process, legs will be turned, ceramics thrown and structures bended to abide by the rule of the round, confirming the remarkable return of the decorative arts. The result is a circular lifestyle forecast, which has no beginning and no end and can be turned round and round for inspiration in creation, information on colours and the realisation of materials.

This presentation will be followed by Trend Union’s Milan Report, outlining the major product trends from this year’s Salone del Mobile; including lighting, furniture, textiles, materials and home accessories.

Guests will receive a copy of Design Oracles (French) by Lidewij Edelkoort!
