Are you wondering how our homes will look in the future? Trend guru Li Edelkoort is one of the world’s most important trend setters of this moment and her trend predictions are followed by design companies and major brands world wide. With the exposition ‘Museum House, a choice of Lidewij Edelkoort’ in the Art Pavilion in Nieuw Roden, The Netherlands, Li gives an impression of what she thinks will be future trends in interior design.
Work of young talent but also of renowned names in the international designer’s world is represented. For example work by Piet Hein Eek, Jurgen Bey and Hella Jongerius, are used by Li to express living in the future according to her interpretation. Maarten Baas’ Smoke chairs are also displayed.
According to Li the key in modern living is that people become curators of their own lives. In the future we will live among all kinds of collections. With these collections we can show our identity. This way we create our own ‘museum house’, Li explains.
Another prediction is that family space is a trend of the past. ‘The living room becomes obsolete’, Li says. In her opinion the house is divided in three categories: the kitchen, the bathroom and the bedroom. The rest of the rooms in the house get a specific, gender orientated function. In the future we will retreat in spaces customized fo ourselves. This inspiring exhibtion can be visited until 29 January 2007.
