These contemporary cubism examples range from wearable art fashions to sculptural furniture pieces that pay homage to the genre's founding icons. Legendary artists like Pablo Picasso are synonymous with the movement that continues to influence today's generation of design enthusiasts.

Standouts from this list include fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck's Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The Paris Fashion Week presentation featured a revival of abstract prints and used clothes as a canvas for contemporary cubism motifs and vibrant prints.

Blending nostalgic references with modern design details, these examples will inspire one to think differently the next time they participate in a creative project.
