Evolving Landscapes: Materials

With fears over melting ice caps, polluted waters and flooding, designers are using water as a visual language to emphasise the detrimental effects of climate change. The overpowering shifts in our environment inspire a clean and modernist aesthetic that provides stability and calm.

Evolving Landscapes focuses on materials that reflect the fragility of our natural surroundings, such as transparent glass, resin and crystal. As a feeling of disconnect between urban living and natural surroundings deepens, fresh open spaces, living materials and protective technologies emerge to bring the nourishing qualities of the outdoors inside. 

For colour directions relating to this theme, see Evolving Landscapes: Colour from our Colour Spectrum A/W 19/20.
