Top 100 Art & Design Trends in February

From Floating Bed Concepts to Comic Book-Inspired Sneakers

— February 24, 2018 — Art & Design
The top February 2018 art and design ideas include a number of dynamic, transformative concepts that aim to make a single product or space as useful as possible. This theme can be seen throughout modular rug designs that shift shapes to make functional furniture pieces, architectural memo pads and even wearable note-taking accessories.

The influence of the modern wellness movement is now visible in everything from meditative office pods to health retreats that encourage connection with oneself and nature through quiet contemplation.

Indoor living is also being retooled to become so functional that minimal human interaction is needed within the home. While there are many smart voice-controlled systems that have the potential to simplify many aspects of one's life, brands are launching dedicated devices like app-controlled faucets, one-handed cutting tools and self-watering indoor gardening systems to streamline daily tasks.
