2015 AW Design Trends – Industrial Revolution
With the birth of new machines and the up-cycling of old the Industrial Revolution trend takes use to industrial crafts which see a juxtaposition between digital and analogue. It focuses on, and is inspired by, variable systems, improvisation of forms and design by intuition.
Soft fabrics are being used in conjunction with heavy metal frames, giving an organic industrial look. We're talking seriously heavy metal, rubber and other materials that are typically used on an industrial scale. These are accompanied and complimented with finishes inspired by tar, asphalt, soot and grease, resulting in greys and blacks being the most dominant colour schemes. For accessories think along the lines of metal shopping trolleys and bird cages.
