Top 100 Design Trends in November

From Dynamic Office Chairs to Reactive Autonomous Dresses

— November 23, 2019 — Art & Design
The November 2019 design round-up calls consumer attention to some elegant solutions, some experimental ventures, and some tech-focused convenience.

Fashion designer Ying Gao, for example, brings garment craft and robotics together, creating two autonomous dress designs that respond to certain stimuli. On the less techy side of design, Brooklyn-based Akiva Leffert harnesses the popularity of IKEA to create a tongue-in-cheek Tarot deck that is inspired by the symbology and business ethos of the furniture giant.

In other spaces that are covered by the November 2019 design category, the synergy between artificial intelligence and the art world continues to be tested. Refik Anadol, for example, offers individuals a unique experience of big data through an installation in New York City.
