Top 100 Design Trends in September

From Artistically Revamped Tech to Basketball-Centric Exhibits

— September 28, 2019 — Art & Design
The September 2019 design list spotlights cutting-edge ventures that elevate numerous industries. A prominent pattern in this round-up is the intersection between art and technology as designers seek to introduce a more aesthetically enriching element to user experience. Although not functional, 3D artist Julien Rivoire reenvisions retro tech devices with reference to artistic sensibilities. Utilizing Autodesk Fusion 360, he produces new, visually-enticing versions of the WinAmp player, the Nokia snake game, and a Netflix-style gadget.

Another instance of cutting-edge projects in the September 2019 design category is a collaboration between experimental fashion pioneer Iris van Herpen who joins forces with Neutelings Riedijk Architects to develop a beautifully textured frieze for the Naturalis Biodiversity Center. This was her first full-scale architecture project.
