Trend Confirmation: Prehistoric

 

The always inspiring Li Eldelkoort confirms our long term forecasting theme, “Prehistoric,” with her latest design curation of the exhibit “Post Fossil: Excavating 21st Century Creation” at the Design Museum Holon, which is on display through April 30, 2011. In her words:

“Time has come for extreme change. Society is ready to break away from last century for good. To break with creative conventions, theoretic rules and stigmas that now are questioned, challenged and broken. To break with a materialistic mentality replacing it with the crafted materialisation of modest earth-bound and recomposed matter. In the aftermath of the worst financial crisis in decades, a period of glamorous and streamlined design for design’s sake comes to an end. A new generation of designers retrace their roots, refine their earth and research their history, sometimes going back to the beginning of time. In this process, they form and formulate design around natural and sustainable materials, favoring timber, hide, pulp, fibre, earth and fire. Like contemporary cavemen, they reinvent shelter, redesign tools and manmade machines, and conceptualize archaic rituals for a more modest, content and contained lifestyle. Like a Fred Flintstone of the future.”
