Design Inspirations – Furniture and Fashion

Fashion also influences lines, colour schemes and textures which are then explored by product and industrial designers. Here we explore this influential topic within design inspirations, the dichotomy between furniture and fashion, through a series of cabinets and sideboards with similar fashion design traits.

Marc Newson, world famous for his contributions to product design and the punctual furniture piece, once stated:

“The fashion industry has an enormous amount to offer in what we do in industrial design because fashion is fast, fashion has its finger on the pulse. There are very few creative industries that work on that rhythm.”
