Li Edelkoort Design & Lifestyle Forecast Seminar 2016For her 2016 trend forecast of the upcoming Spring/Summer 2017 season, Li Edelkoort presents a two-part seminar in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The Emancipation of Everything
As the long-awaited follow-up to Trend Union’s ANTI_FASHION season, this seminar will present SS 2017’s colours, textiles and styles. Radical change is needed to give shape to the 21st century, at last!
A huge wave of innovation and rethinking needs to be set in motion, emancipating everything for everyone, every step of the way.
We can review a colour, rethink a textile and rekindle a style as well as revolutionising the retail system of retail from within.
With the parting of the old ways, the rupture with tradition and the detachment from generalised greed, we can envision a new departure with a disconnected and removed way of working, giving room to intuition and inspiration, free from self-imposed conventions and self-invented logic.
Home & Lifestyle 2017
Li will also be presenting Turning in Circles, the latest Home & Lifestyle seminar.
The circle is a potent social symbol of inclusiveness and togetherness; of a universal vision on our planet and our milky ways of life.
The rounder edge of materials will deliver design for a softer and more harmonious interior and the round shapes of lighting will be emanating in a softer fashion, as if they possess an aura. Form will be further pushed to a perfected sphere with round tables, round stools and round carpets. In the process, legs will be turned, ceramics thrown and structures bended to abide by the rule of the round, confirming the remarkable return of the decorative arts. The result is a circular lifestyle forecast, which has no beginning and no end and can be turned round and round for inspiration in creation, information on colours and the realisation of materials.
