Trend Report:
ORGANIC DESIGN
Organic Design.

Eclectic. Atypical. Organic. 2020 sees interiors styled with organic forms that break with clean lines and anxiety-inducing structured geometries. Objects and furniture boast irregular, curvilinear shapes and extraordinary silhouettes that mirror the eccentricity of nature’s elegant designs. Straight lines are at a minimum, with abstract forms fluidly drawn to resemble natural shapes, evoking the poetic and sensual sculptural works of Constantin Brâncuși, Jean Arp, and Isamu Noguchi.

A popular ‘70s trend pulling from mid-century forms, this recent revival is a fresh, contemporary interpretation with an exciting vocabulary of sinuous contours and bold plays on proportion, all while maintaining the modish minimalist feel. The essence of organic shapes is of remarkable purity – sumptuously intertwining living forms with extraordinary craftsmanship and refined materials. These soft, playfully curvy, and at times cylindrical silhouettes hypnotize with their rounded edges and comforting authentic lines promising a harmonious enduring appeal.
