Top 25 Design Trends in April

From Painting-Inspired Bread Clocks to Towable Miniature Cabins

— May 2, 2021 — Art & Design
This list of April 2021 design trends see many different designers across the globe push creative boundaries and introduce new perspectives in artful ways. One of the most notable launches of the month is PAMPSHADE by artist Yukiko Morita and the latest NAAAAN Time Clock.

The Japanese designer is known for creating Bread Lamps and the inspiration behind the NAAAAN Time Clock nods to Salvador Dali's iconic 'The Persistence of Memory' painting. Notably, it is actually created from real naan bread. Another notable design trend this month is the BIVVI Camp mini cabin design that is made with sustainability in mind. It is a mini cabin that can be easy portable due to its prefabricated construction.
