Next Wave Textile Trends
26-04-2018 in NEXT WAVE
NEXT WAVE is the title of this trend blog. I, Niek De Prest, trend analyst for MoOD+Indigo, have selected it because of the enormous speed we are running into the future with. Trends come in waves. The one already higher and more powerful than the other.
But the ‘next wave’ which is approaching now, will engulf the entire interior branch. In which direction will depend on the vision of the companies. All the reason to follow and understand the trends in our eco system.
I will focus on 3 major trends.
The first one is all about co-creation, about co-op with specialists from the domains outside of textiles. Not in the least because of the advancements in AI (artificial intelligence).
The second is about the circular economy which is heading towards us with the impact of a tsunami.
The third focus is on the opinion drivers in the interior: designers and architects with a vision, blogs, design experiments, fashion, movies,... and their influence on colour, on texture and patterns.
