Description

After decades of practice, the clean and simplified designs of Minimalism, whereless is more and form follows function are less used. There is an explosion ofvibrant design today that breaks free from the minimal style of approach, prevailingin current design trends. With new technology, advanced engineering andexpanded choice of materials, designers are embracing design with scintillatingattitude, challenging aesthetic boundaries and speculating new expressions invisual codes.The upper crust of designers have always been synonymous with the fashiondesigners of haute couture. They set trends and present bold concepts becomingindicators for the mass market to follow. Desire presents the creme de la cremeof design today. On the one hand, it presents celebrated designers who are creatingdesign art, one-off pieces and limited editions which are considered worksof art. Created with experimental freedom and intended for a niche market, theyare exhibited at prestigious design galleries and sold at international auctionhouses. On the other hand, the book introduces promising young talent culledfrom around the world that is merging various design disciplines and producinga new expressive language. Influenced by a diverse range of styles, their conceptualdesigns are provocative. They challenge our understanding of furniture,objects, interior design and will pave the way we will live in the future.The pioneering examples showcased in Desire will shape the future aesthetic ofproduct, furniture and object design and be a sure indicator of trends that will beinfluencing the design industry.
