Have you lately observed the melting effect? Objects and textiles seem to leave their usual frame and just exponentially grow. Both, interior design objects and fashion proposals show ample silhouettes
I will share with you today some examples where both disciplines show a few common features:
Nanna Kiil | Xiao Li
Alexandra Kehajoglou | Filhas de Gaia
A rather surreal approach comes to my mind when looking at furniture pieces which often remind Dali’s melting pocket watch. The artist was working on his theory of “softness” and “hardness” which was central to his thinking of the time, and it seems to come back all reloaded in interior design.
The main purpose of this micro trend is definitely moving towards a greater smoothness underlined by a rather pastel-alike colour palette with a few more dramatic accents in black, where silicone and foam emphasize on a solid yet soft consistency.
In both disciplines, fashion and interior design, there is a fine limit in between wearable or functional pieces and art. I rather see this trend as a very beautiful form of experimentation. G, x
