Top 100 Design Trends in November

From Cozy Lakeside Saunas to Spherical Underground Fridges

— November 28, 2015 — Art & Design
The top November 2015 design trends signal the direction of both functional and conceptual design language.

Located in Cincinnati, Sundry & Vice is an apothecary-themed bar that will instantly transport patrons to an earlier time period. Situated in the city's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, the recently opened spot is charismatic and aesthetically pleasing all at once. The vintage-inspired cocktail bar speaks to the design movement that takes inspiration from turn of the century apothecaries, a progression seen in everything from architecture to packaging and branding.

Separately, the latest project from famed artist Yayoi Kusama comes in the form of the 'Infinity Room.' The installation is currently housed at Denmark's 'Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and is comprised of a room that has been completely covered with a yellow-scale polka dot pattern by Kusama.

The top November 2015 design trends speak to the overarching themes found in design projects that span industry and sector.
