TREND: Rounding off the angles

TREND: Rounding off the angles

If the straight line shows no sign of weakening for as much, the curve, is again blessed. A bit of sweetness in this world of brutes has indeed been noticed during the latest design events around the world and the latest interior design projects in date. Decryption of this trend, evidence and novelties in support.

 

 

TREND: Rounding off the angles

 

 

1. THE NEED FOR GENTLENESS

 

The World is hard, the World is changing. And design was never the last area in which geographical, political and social changes were historically felt. In the 60s, the trend was for everyone to have access to comfort and a decent home. This was the birth of mass production and therefore mass design. Since the 2000s and because we have decided to better manage our materials and their end of life for the sake of our planet, design has become eco-responsible and preferably recyclable.

 

Well this time, it would seem that with the return of the hardness, the conflicts and the feeling of insecurity, the design began to round off the angles. Because home and interior in general have always been the refuge, the shelter where the curves invite you to comfort and consolation. This is the case in the latestIndia Mahdavi for Red Valentino, where even the lines have been curved and where the feminine and encompassing atmosphere carries you away and influences you for sure. The new range of Missana - design Mut Design has also not gone unnoticed.

2. THE RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE

 

This trend may also suggest the need to get closer to natureThis is not to say that there is a "return". For as everyone knows, straight lines do not exist in nature. And the idea of soft, rounded shapes and semi-circles had to be found somewhere. Whoever is not inspired by the disproportionately large and majestic moon of last night should throw the first stone at this article! 

 

Speaking of astronomy, in this quest for nature and well-being, let's consider our Planet. The one with whom each of us has made the pact to help and preserve. Because in terms of preserving the environment, all fields have to set an example and going in that direction, the design has well understood. And in these days of COP22, design has every interest to stand out as a precursor and initiator of a protective movement in favor of our planet. Great mention to Reinier de Jong for having dared to imagine a curved base.

3. JUST A RENEWAL ?

 

Finally, because trends and fashions are constantly renewed, why not the return of the curves ? After all, since the 70's - in addition to extreme styles like the one of Zaha Hadid - we actually never saw such a return of the rounded shapes. What if its time had come ? If after the advent of geometry and angular patterns in 2014/2015, design has watered its wine to become more round ?

 

If it softens our interiors and our moods, the design in curves is perhaps the logical continuation of the forms. Remember those science fiction movies where the future, in opposition to the present, is imagined as curved, as if the evolution was definitely round. Mathieu Lehanneur and Nendo have certainly understood, appearing these days on the front of the stage with creations gently bulging.
