Hi everybody!

I thought it could be interesting to have a general discussion of the current styling trends whatever the design field. I’d love to ear what everyone from diverse fields have to say on the subject. Showing examples would be nice.

Whether you are from transportation, houseware, softgoods or electronics let’s get the ball rolling !

I'll throw the first one. Vintage seems to be everywhere whether it's furniture, consumer products or jewelry.

Here's a cool website that goes a little more in-depth with their trend analysis than your typical pinterest board: http://awoltrends.com/

This one's pretty cool. Psychedelic, cosmic, multi-colored, holographic, iridescent, rainbow. Shamelessly linking to my own board: http://pin.it/ySgWS5P

Organic Design, especially those frame structures. Lovegrove's products aren't particularly recent but I think they captured the upcoming trend.

I think of trends more as a visual language than products in a category. I am a product designer, but I like to understand the emotional "feeling" you are trying to design for.

I feel like the retro "90's" throwback styling is going to trend for 2017. A lot of color, neon, negative space. minimalism. visual weight. I also see a lot of inspiration in natural patterns.

More of a material but wood is used really often in products it didn't before such as electronics. I would say lighter wood essence combined with white parts is seen often now.
