IT’S TRENDING: The ribbed surface

Eclectic Trends | The ribbed surface: the latest trend in interior design

The ribbed surface is the latest (micro-micro) trend in interior design, set to mark a higher dynamic appearance. It is, so to speak, an extension of the Tactility Trend and Circle Trend.

We have been noticing for a while now how ribbed surfaces are carving themselves a space back into the interior design scene. May they be textured ceramic wall covering, wooden panels or textiles, these features are now part of the design vocabulary when coming to design an up-to-date and captivating places. They can be found from set designs to interiors and they are more and more often included as a defining element of design objects as well.

The preference for ribbed elements is likely to lie in their much attractiveness. As a sort of dynamic skin, they are able to create games of lights and darkness on the surface, changing the atmosphere of the space during the day according to the way it interacts with light. Also, the three-dimensional quality of these features increases the tactility feeling of the surface, especially with some particular chromatic choices.

Here it is 10 examples of this trend.

As you can see from the example we have just shown you, the ribbed feature is indifferently applied either vertically by curtain-like backdrops, or horizontally . This is the case especially of seating, like in the London-based restaurant Omar’s place or in the latest design work by Parisian interior architect and designer Stéphane Parmentier.

Undoubtedly, the ribbed surface creates a vibration pattern with a retro charm flavor, adding a strong sense of movement to the design. This in particularly true in the example of ‘Chez Nina’, designed by India Mandavi for Nilufar Gallery for this 2018 Milan Design Week.
