Top 100 Art & Design Trends in September

From Athlete Fidget Tools to Ocean Plastic Hangers

— October 15, 2021 — Art & Design
These September 2021 art & design innovations highlight the importance of incorporating creativity into our everyday lives. The conceptual Nike Breathe by Varun Anand, for example, alleviates anxiety in a creative way. Marketed for football players, the Nike Breathe is a fidget tool that players can interact with pre-game to help them focus their attention.

The (re) x Hanger is another innovative example that reinterprets typical design concepts. Made from 100% recycled ocean plastic, this common household item was reimagined by its design company to create a sustainable alternative while cleaning up the South African oceans to encourage and promote healthy sea life.

These two examples showcase the expansive range of possibilities when creative minds work together to make helpful tools and designs for society.
