SOULFUL SOLUTIONS

Design is a language, the expression of the spirit of the time in forms, colours and materials. To ‘understand’ this language and allow it to influence the choices you make for your collection or product development, it is first essential to scrutinise the spirit of the time.

Something of a challenge in an upended world that looks different from one week to the next. However, Christine knows exactly how to navigate her way through.

On 20th of January she will take you on a trip through the spirit of the time and show you what design language, colours and combinations will prevail in lifestyle, fashion, design, interiors, retail and visual merchandising for summer 2022.

Tickets

Program

Zoom out Compact and clear analysis of the spirit of the time and consumer trends.

THE ETERNAL TABLE OF DESIGN ELEMENTS

I discovered a method for clarifying my way of working within a system. After extensive analysis, we have put together an inventory of the perennial sources of inspiration that consistently return in one form or another throughout design language. We have organised these into a table, inspired by the periodic table of elements. We have organised these into a table, inspired by the periodic table of elements. Together they form ‘The eternal table of design elements’.

As with any chemical process, these elements are constantly remixed and blended in continuously alternating combinations and proportions. The system introduces a method that makes it possible to scrutinise each new season: What’s happening in design language? Which elements, influenced by the spirit of the time, predominate?

The system will also assist you if you wish to find out what exactly is happening in new collections, at trade fairs, exhibitions, etc You will start to recognise the ingredients, a useful tool when making choices and decisions. During the event I will show you the elements that will play a significant role in Summer ’22.
