Top 100 Art & Design Trends in February

From Sci-Fi 80s-Style Bikes to Perforated Chair Designs

— February 22, 2020 — Art & Design
The February 2020 art & design round-up introduces some cutting-edge concepts. With a healthy mix of objects that are display-worthy and products that have use-value, the category brings attention to innovations like the visually enhanced cafe pavilion by Morag Myerscough, James Turrell's meditative 'Passage of Light' exhibit at Museo Jumex, the 'CopenHill' waste-to-energy plant park, Rocean One's multi-use water machine, and more.

Lucy McRae's Kit for survival in the digital age definitely stands out in the February 2020 art & design category. It is a full-body experience that equips people with the tools that they might need in order to live in "the age of the algorithm." This includes things like a mask that physically shields people from the outside world. Aside from being highly amusing and thematically appropriate, this project certainly offers commentary on the dynamics of the progressing digital age.
