Top 95 World Trends in February

From Big City Getaway Spas to Norwegian Artist Hubs

— February 25, 2018 — World
The top February 2018 world ideas range from sculptural furniture pieces that celebrate Hispanic culture to restorative getaway spas that inspire tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Around the world, many crossovers are happening, including new luxury hotels in London that draw from the designs of traditional Japanese architecture, as well as North American payment systems that aim to appeal to visiting tourists from overseas.

In China, the social platform WeChat is testing an all-new electric ID system that will potentially replace physical, officially issued identification cards for a variety of purposes. Considering that this system is used by millions of users in the country, the implementation of the system has the chance to revolutionize the way people in China do everything from check into hotels or apply for government services.
