Seaspiration

Looking to sea creatures to inspire different areas of design

Implications - Designers are constantly looking to different parts of the world for inspiration, and over the last year, it seems the inspiration is coming from the sea. Fashion, furniture, architecture and more have been influenced by sea life, which offers a very fantastical aesthetic. The sea has always been full of mysteries, so enlivening designs with sea creature themes gives any area of design a dash of alluring whimsy.
