IT’S TRENDING: The Rattan Universe (Free Report)

Free PDF-It's Trending-The Rattan Universe-Eclectic Trends

Rattan has been popping up as a material in interior and design project for some time but the contemporary rattan vibe has utterly exploded now. We simply see it everywhere. Either applied as a decorative embellishment to furniture or using an almost “total look” effect, rattan is part of our everyday aesthetic scenario these days.

May reasons lay behind the choice for this material. The first can be traced to the easiness rattan can adapt to different objects and spaces, enriching the effect with individuality and meaning for the long-time craft heritage it relates to. Also, rattan adds a tactile yet light, elegantly natural feeling, in particular when used as cover material for partitions or large surfaces.

Let’s see now 10 examples of what we consider is trending right now:

“El lujo del 21” by Magalie.

This project deserves an extra mention because of the beauty of the bags, and also there is a message to be spread we wanted to share.

“The luxury of 21” is a pioneering and exemplary project of the commitment of the field of luxury and fashion to diversity in society.
A creative process of more than 10 sessions for the creation of a luxury handbag where 3 people with different abilities have learned from inspiration and patterns to the launch of a business in the fashion and luxury sector. 3 bags synthesize experience, search for excellence and, of course, sine qua non as creativity, spontaneity and personality of the protagonists showing that the inclusion of people with Down Syndrome and intellectual disability in the fashion universe is a fact, it is sustainable, and desirable. The benefits of all the units sold from this winning bag go to DOWN SPAIN and the three protagonists of this story and creative process of  Teresa, Eva and Maria.

Rattan has never had a more eclectic revival going finally away from the pure natural &soft mood; we love the colorful approach and juxtapositions we see now. Some are elegant other more playful.

As you can see from the example we have just shown you; the rattan vibe ranges from specific objects to larger elements within domestic, retail, or wellbeing-focused locations. The cane material can be used to create dramatic elements as the colorful circles in the Kaikaya Restaurant by Masqueespacio or to create a softer, more tranquil effect in the RÖ Skin by O’Sullivan Skoufoglou Architects.

There is no doubt; the contemporary rattan vibe creates a soft ambiance adding a retro-chic charm, as we can see, particularly in the counter at The Straits Clan by Takenouchi Webb. Curious to see more It’s Trending examples? Check the series here!
