Top 100 Art & Design Trends in October

From Eco-Friendly Plane Meals to Synthetic Silk Parkas

— October 26, 2019 — Art & Design
There are some interesting examples in the October 2019 art & design list, highlighting either aesthetic purveyance, functional enhancement or an amalgamation of the two.

Studio Michael Hilgers is experimenting with alternative silhouettes, proposing something like the HOKU Side Table. The piece features a fold that makes it quite unique and highly usable. The NOHrD WallBars, on the other hand, is a wall-mounted exercise rack that offers a variety of training options. This minimalist and simple solution encourages people to be active in their home, while also saving space.

The October 2019 art & design category also calls attention to some exhibitions. 'Small Designs, Great Architects' is one of them. The event is held at the Roca Gallery Barcelona and it boasts how big concepts in architecture are realized in smaller, design-friendly objects.
