In a world with finite resources, Redefined is forward-looking. Contrary to common opinion, it celebrates mass production and its ability to recreate the new from the old. Consider terrazzo. A composite material consisting of cement and marble-chip, it is elevated from the industrial to the sophisticated through human means. Redefined is similarly a celebration of using our earth’s resources to restore balance. The palette is a contemporary clash of chalky pinks and cement greys. Used in blocks or grids, this trend will provide impact.
Just as the ocean can be strong and steadfast, or light and peaceful, Immersed creates an atmosphere of self-awareness. It takes inspiration from one of the basic elements of life: water. This trend represents time away from the crowd to disconnect and realign. It is a reminder for us all to simply take better care. The aqua spectrum drifts from a midnight blue to a light fog, carrying with it a depth of tranquillity that helps us to imaging home as the getaway.
In the same way that concrete pavements meet the bright lights of the urban nightlife, Movement is the embodiment of diversity. Global travel and street culture inspire the dynamic flow of graphic shapes, representing a clear direction on a meandering journey. The use of burnished grey creates a striking backdrop for the bold stamps of colour that make this a fun, captivating trend.
