Top 60 Design Trends in February

From Whimsical Playground Additions to Gaming Design Contests

— February 23, 2020 — Art & Design
These February 2020 design innovations include whimsical playground additions and gaming design contests.

When exploring the month's architecture and interior design examples, standouts include the spiraled facade of 'The Exchange' building in Sydney, Australia. The structure is designed by Kengo Kuma and is "wrapped in 20,000 meters of light-colored wood," and feaures a circular design allowing for accessible public spaces.

Islyn Studio's interior for Bond Vet is another notable project, fusing functional and contemporary elements to create an inviting health center for animals. Additionally, Tetra Seats are another favorite that draws inspiration from the iconic, retro arcade game. The block-shaped seats mimic the elements found inside the game and are sold in sets of 5 that can be easily customized and reconfigured.
