Sourcing Trend Direction | Spring-Summer 2020: Genesis

In Genesis, the unearthing of ancient burial sites and fossilized discoveries have sparked a fascination with the origins of primitive homosapians and prehistoric life. Revealing the creation of the invention, notions of raw technology embrace the prototype phase of design. Designers like Axel Vervoordt reflect the elemental aesthetic of the trend as we merge ancient antiquities and modern minimalism. Advancements in technology give us clearer insights into the beginning of time, as we continue to reveal hidden secrets and treasures of the world. 

DERIVED FROM THE MACRO TREND: 

LIFE 3.0

Sourcing Trend Direction | Spring-Summer 2020: Genesis

Life 3.0 is not a science fiction conversation, it is the conversation of today. Artificial intelligence is the most important topic of our time. As living creatures, we are limited to our biological hardware. Technology is limitless, and this is the horizon for which we need to prepare. The impact of robotics in all forms will likely be the most important agent of change in the 21st century, transforming our economy, culture, politics, and the self. IoT (Internet of Things) has already demonstrated how smart homes, vehicles, and AI companions improve our daily lives, anticipating our needs by learning our habits.

MATERIALS

Pulling reference from ancient elements and modern biotechnology, the most innovative of materials balance both past and present. Synthetics are recycled and naturals regenerated into new materials that tell a meaningful story about the people and places they hail from. Material origin is essential to this story, as the focus shifts towards naturally occurring elements that are sourced locally and ethically.
