These 2018 modern trends range from remixed art deco lighting collections to art exhibits that are inspired by cryptocurrency. While examples like Andy Bauch's art collection feature hidden crypto wallets in every piece, others like Preciosa Lighting's table lamps are a contemporary homage to the roaring 20s.

When it comes to interior design, notable innovations include privacy-focused office furnishings along with transformative residential accessories. While the ''SecretArea' desk -- a design work concept by Ivan Goran Žunar -- helps users avoid distraction while reducing surrounding noise, others like Bjarke Ingels Group & Artemide's 'Gople' lamp is a pill-shaped lighting fixture which successfully changes color to alter the mood of a room in seconds.

Interactive communal art galleries and emotion-evoking retail spaces round off this list of 2018 modern trends and speak to consumers' desire for sensory public spaces.
