Top 100 Modern Trends in September

From Sensory Therapy Furniture to Transparent Pool Bridges

— September 30, 2015 — Art & Design
The top September 2015 modern trends include a wide range of design innovations that speak to modern ideals regarding minimalism and sustainability.

Speaking to the expanded understanding of well-being and one's environment, sensory therapy furniture is both scientific and new age. The 'Jardin d’Hiver' furniture collection by designer Géraldine Biard is specifically designed to maximize health and well-being by inducing sleep and relieving anxiety.

Meanwhile, the 'Cloud Seeding Pavilion' by MODU is an outdoor installation representing a modern understanding of particle physics. Using 30,000 white plastic balls, the installation recreates the natural formation of rain clouds.

The top September 2015 modern trends showcase a growing interest in the incorporation of modern scientific knowledge into everyday items in order to enhance well-being.
