Top 95 Design Trends in October

From Silver-Made Inkless Pens to Tarot-Themed Candle Sets

— October 16, 2021 — Art & Design
The October 2021 design innovations combine popular culture with tradition to create unique and meaningful products.

Birthdate Co.'s tarot-themed candle set harnesses the popular movement towards spirituality to create an appealing design for those interested in Tarot practices. The collection includes a set of three candles that have notes of bergamot, citron, eucalyptus, and amber. Like Birthdate Co., many brands are incorporating design elements that reflect public interests into their products.

In addition, the ZAI pen features a minimalist and ergonomic design. BAH International responds to the continued interest in minimalism to create a unique pen design rooted in tradition. The company blended traditional inkless silverpoint pen technology with a sleek, modern finish to appeal to today's population.
