Urban Escapism

Modern structures include quiet spaces for consumers to reflect

Implications - Consumers are seeing the widespread integration of natural interior spaces designed to facilitate moments of tranquility in chaotic urban settings. Often designed to filter out distractions and allow one to connect with their thoughts, such spaces highlight the relationship between one's environment and overall well-being, as well as the need to take dedicated breaks from the connected world in the pursuit of self-preservation. In addition to highlighting the modern emphasis on mental wellness and its relationship to functional design, this progression speaks to the desire to "unplug" in a world of constant connectivity.
