Top 100 Art & Design Trends in August

From Calm-Inducing Homes to Naturally Crafted Tiny Homes

— August 28, 2021 — Art & Design
Art and design are fundamental elements that shape the world around us and the August 2021 art and design trends underscore consumers' desire for modernity and sustainability. As environmental pressures continue to mount, many individuals are leaning into products that offer eco-friendly options without sacrificing function or form.

The conceptual 'Living Shell' shelter by Omri Cohen, for example, combines contemporary aesthetics with sustainable practices. The design features a bamboo frame that's covered with a series of jute, felt, and wheatgrass materials to offer protection from the elements and a stylish yet natural look. These materials would "grow continuously to interlace and provide additional protection into the future as they mature." Moreover, the structure was designed to be be connected to an irrigation system to improve growth.
