By the end of the year’s first month, Kathy Russel cited a number of different tips to achieve healthy interiors. Russel pointed out that people spend a significant amount of time in their homes. The writer explains that there are some things that might be seen as unimportant or insignificant could actually have a great impact on the people that inhabit the space.

Russel added, that some design elements could even trigger positive or negative emotions or memories, that might completely change or set one’s disposition for the day. Design elements that can impact health include light, air quality, room function, and furniture placement.

International architecture and design firm, Little Diversified Architectural Consulting, agrees with the concept, highlighting the importance of Salutogenic design which is design centering on the wellness of the occupant.

The design firm cited examples such as good lighting, which could lower risks of headache or reduce blood pressure; and good planning with proper way-finding could mean less stress for a user of the space, as compared to a confusing space that is difficult to navigate through.

Putting these theories and concepts to test, Salon Del Mobile teamed up with furniture giant Muuto, Reddymade Architecture, and InternationalArts + Mind Lab of Johns Hopkins University’s Brain Science Institute.

During the 2019 furniture and design fair held in Milan, an interactive installation called “A Space for Being” was spearheaded by the Google VP of Hardware Design, UX, and Ivy Ross.

Google worked with Johns Hopkins team on a wristband that guests will use during the five-minute immersion in each room of the installation. The said wristband was made to measure body temperature, sweat, movement, heart rate, and breath rate.

“A Space for Being” is made up of three rooms designed with distinct differences. As the guests would enter each room, the wristband would record their physical reactions.

Reddymade designed each of the three rooms and were furnished with Muuto furniture. While each room was aesthetically appealing, the designs differ in theme. The “Essential” room features a cozy space with lush textures and warm tones. The playful room was called “Vital.” Lastly, the “Transformative” room featured cool undertones within its minimal space. Coordinated lighting and appropriate music were also played during room visits.

By the end of the immersion in the designed rooms, data was collected from the wristbands. Data was then interpreted and analyzed to determine which of the three rooms makes the guest feel comfortable or at ease.

The importance of the project is the accuracy of the choice that could be made for homeowners in determining which room would work for them. Gone are the days when people will have to work with what a setting imposes.

Since well-being, including physical and mental health, is shown to be affected by interior design, this technology and concept can eliminate a homeowner’s possible indecisiveness and promote higher efficiency in productivity while maintaining their health.

SALONE DEL MOBILE: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THIS YEAR’S FURNITURE, INTERIOR…

Design, culture and quality are some of the words that describe the Salone del Mobile Milano, the leading international and trendsetter furniture and design event.

“There is just nothing like it,” says Marva Griffin, head of the SaloneSatellite, the event’s space dedicated to under-35s talented designers.

The equivalent for fashion week in furniture, the Salone flags design concepts to the design community worldwide.

“It is during these few days that the initial, virtuous and fruitful dialogue between productivity and creativity that will inform great projects over the coming months is sparked,” says Claudio Luti, President of the Salone del Mobile.

“You start noticing very particular people as soon as it begins,” a Milanese local told Euronews. Il Salone attracts around 400,000 people every year, among them: creatives, entrepreneurs, journalists, collectors, critics, designers and architects.

More than 2,000 companies come to showcase furnishing products that range from classic to futuristic, under the shades of greatly produced theatrical looking stands and displays.

The big movement

The Salone del Mobile, which took place between 19-22 April, translates into maximum quality, but quality not only as a synonym of beauty and durability but also of sustainability. Beyond the green sustainable aspect, the creations take into account the end of life of the object.

“New designs are green orientated, ethically responsible and increasingly research-centred,” says the Salone’s manifesto.

From energy efficient refrigerators to dishwashers, screwless furniture and “bio”, or organic, chairs: the Salone demonstrates how creating design means thinking about the future, not just in terms of materials, but holding superior quality standards and a creative process that recognises that good design will endure over time.

Aside from the sustainability revolution, what approach will design take this year?

The Salone said in a statement: “There is no one single approach, but many different, and in fact the lack of a well-defined trend should be seen as the driving trend.”

The absence of “unidirectional approach” should be stressed, but there are still various characteristics that are definitively part of 2018’s trends.

The narrative value

Designers are bringing back the great pieces from the past — but reworked.

The Salone explains how the trend comes braided with the general public that has a deep fascination for their historical past. Apart from the obvious recognition of ancient elegant design.

Scandinavian style is among the favourites re-worked.

Fully functional

Coming from the same fascination for the past, many designers are rediscovering pieces because of their size. Enchanted by the vintage lines but troubled by their dimension, creatives are transforming the pieces and suiting them to a domestic size, suited to the environment where they’ll be.

Mirrors reign supreme

A phenomenon that’s said to be related to the “selfish” Millennial generation, mirrors were everywhere at the Salone. From emerging designers to well-established brands like Edra. Mirrors reigned supreme.

Sophisticated chinoiseries

From cushions to fragrances, prints and lines, the influence of East Asia was present in the Salone, especially with the wildly popular wallpaper.

Fantasy

There was no lack of fantasy-themed furniture. Justified by a phenomena parallel to design, such as fashion and cinema, it was particularly common in ceramics and fabrics.

Fabric, fabric, fabric

Fabrics are evermore important, from African drawings to 18th-century prints: sofas with exotic birds and dragons were almost as common as the sofas themselves.
