35 Design Trends Inspired by Plants

— September 6, 2008 — Art & Design
At Trend Hunter we’ve seen plants being used as the inspiration for many innovations. As the ‘green’ movement gains steam, plants and foliage are everywhere in the world of design. Designers of headwear, shoes and jewellery are some of this group that has been motivated by plants to develop their creations. Advertising agencies too, ‘grew’ their campaigns based on lettuce and blossoming flowers. There are plant pot speakers, leafy fridge magnets, and leaf shaped hammocks.

Not enough to peak your interest? There are even more plant inspired concepts to cool for words - pet plants, leaf shaped salad servers, plant shaped art from UPCs and leaf lighting, take a look at them all here.
