Top 100 Art & Design Trends in May

From Cordless Vacuum Coffee Makers to Zero-Waste Notebooks

— May 29, 2021 — Art & Design
Many May 2021 art & design innovations balance form and function to offer products that provide stylish solutions to modern problems. These products evoke timeless design themes like earthy naturalism and modern minimalism through quality materials and refined finishes.

For example, the elegance of the VacOne Coffee Air Brewer conceals a powerful mechanism that effectively filters coffee grounds using vacuum pressure. The VacOne's cordless design and easy-clean features make high-quality coffee brewing an absolute breeze.

Appealing to eco-conscious consumers, Piorama's Paper Guardian notebook has a built-in blade that allows consumers to physically section out notes in order to cut down on paper waste. The notebook's upscale exterior is made from recycled plastics and boasts corrosion- and impact-resistant properties.
