As a sea of new fashion shows, exhibitions, and events around the world take place, new and exciting trends emerge that will define the aesthetic of this year. Graphic, colourful designs in particular are sparking our creativity for design and décor for the coming seasons, with their beautiful shapes and fresh, vibrant feel. Louis Vuitton displayed a perfect example of this theme recently, within the company’s new advert campaign of bright yellow contrasted by slick black squares and matching pointed shoes and Vivienne Westwood also chose almost comical, bright, graphic shapes to grace the faces of her models in her Autumn/Winter 2013, which we completely adored.
The work of French Conceptual artist, Daniel Buren, who collaborated with Marc Jacobs on the Louis Vuitton campaign shown above, depicts the graphic sixties style in décor. The artist creates installations that mirror the work of the aforementioned designers in their stark simplicity and clever use of shape and shows how the current fashion trends can easily be interpreted into event design that would create a most exciting and up to date interior. We translate the trend into events using LED booths that are brightly lit in neon to contrast with a graphic, chequerboard floor, set against a minimal, draped background.
Another variation of the graphic, 1960’s trend, comes in the form of the Tate Modern’s latest retrospective, ‘Lichtenstein’, which showcases 125 of his paintings and sculptures. We think that quite a few of the designers we’ve pictured might have been inspired by his work just as much as we are! His work, Interior with Mirrored Wall in particular, is a bright and playful depiction of a pop art inspired interior, filled with lively primary colours, a Matisse inspired rug and a sharp, minimal sofa. All of which can be easily placed in an event, with colour block sofas, vividly bright chairs and patterned soft furnishings that further reflect the trend and create a most vibrant space. Check out our brand new inspiration board on Pinterest ‘Pop Art!’ which celebrates amazingly bright art and interiors, and showcases our event designs influenced by them.
