Why is our home decor dripping, spilling and melting? | Architecture Digest

The rise of the NFT revolution is also partly to blame (or blame) for the molten shapes we see these days: as digital art, which often appears in the form of impossible 3D shapes, continues to push our idea of ​​reality, we see these experimental digital forms and textures repeated in physical work, as in the Supergroup 2 exhibition at the Superhouse Vitrine in New York City. The exchange between the digital and the physical world is becoming increasingly important for the development of contemporary design and we expect that the gap between the two will continue to shrink.

Ultimately, the splat trend continues to build on the move away from the minimalist spaces of the early 2010s towards a more dynamic, colorful and futuristic look for contemporary interiors. So where to go next? “I think there are ways the organic will continue to be a stronghold, but the tone could go darker and more mechanical,” concludes architectural designer Harry Chadha. “We may be seeing a rejection of curves overall as there is a shift towards hardware and material-based processes.”
