Trend Union Design & Lifestyle - 2022 Li Edelkoort


During the Covid-19 lockdown, most people were given time to detox from work and stress, finding joy while making food, pleasure in cleaning the house and having fun doing puzzles; thus discovering the many benefits of slowing down. Immense human empathy was harvested as a new rite of spring. The earth respired, air pollution cleared, waters were cleaner and animals invaded vacant cities. We were happily missed.

The lifestyle forecasting book presents the newest trends in the field of design, architecture and decoration. It illustrates the decoration of our domestic and professional spaces, including references to forms and materials, and a detailed colour card.

Key words and texts describe the identities and behaviours of future markets, destined not only for the home and interiors sectors, but increasingly so for other industries as varied as food retailing, automotive interiors, leisure parks and tabletop design.

This key tool for design, marketing, research and development, is produced annually and released each May.
