From Floating Magnetic Timepieces to Soap-Free Dishwashers

 - Jan 28, 2018
These 2018 art and design trends make it clear that, as the maxim holds, home is where the heart is. In a year when the happenings in the world at large weren't viewed as particularly pleasant for large swaths of the population, the best products from artists, designers, and brands have turned out to be those that improve and beautify home life.

One of the most common themes among the innovations listed here is a push to save space. Cities around the world are growing in population, which is in turn making it harder to come by space. To help people make the most of the little space they do have, furniture designers have come up with creative ways to prioritize space, with modular pieces and room dividers to turn even a small apartment into a palace.

Even the housing itself has been subject to this degree of downsizing. Many architects have been working to develop, small, prefab houses that are inexpensive without sacrificing home's luxuries.
