NYCxDESIGN 2015 Trends We Love: Terrestrial Textures
by Annie Werbler
While the physical strain of NYCxDESIGN has many longing for an early summer vacation, the following finds thrust that desire out of this world. Whether attempting to capture the impression that a wiry tree casts upon a small child, or to replicate slices of earthen materials in hallucinatory colors, or even to imagine looking down upon the atmosphere of another planet from our present perch, this year designers are translating their impressions of the universe at every scale. Walking the shows focuses attention on an endless display of exquisite, earthly items, but these inspired designs serve as a welcome reminder of the humble beauty inherent in our natural world.
