Books: Living Trends
“Living Trends. The 5 scenarios and 10 trends of domesticity and living” is a book-laboratory, a collective project that is rich with examples and reflections, that proposes the scenarios and trends of living, and that tries to interpret the principal directions of consumption and design, that mark the contemporary. The more advanced concepts of domesticity are presented, integrated with the analysis of successful new products and cases, both from the world of furnishing/design, and the world of commercial distribution.
To better articulate this difficult analysis, each of the 5 scenarios is articulated into two trends, described and illustrated through relevant examples of creative, advanced projects and products, completed with an emblematic case of distribution: the store and the point of sale more often than not constitute the indispensable “closing of the circle” of the scenario and its trends.
MACEF (International trade fair dedicated to the home), that each year proposes the most advanced scenario in the production and distribution of home furnishings, has been a precious partner to this project, even through the events organised in collaboration with Future Concept Lab.
“Living Trends. The 5 scenarios and 10 trends of domesticity and living” is the latest offering of the ‘Trends’ collection published by Libri Scheiwiller: a series of bilingual italian/english books edited by Francesco Morace, where the experience of the institute in analysis of socio-cultural scenarios emerges. Within the volumes, each of which dedicated to a specific area, the articulation of trends and relative ‘case studies’ of companies and products, are enriched by numerous photographs taken from the international photographic archive of the Institute.
