LINK-UP

When it comes to today’s digital age, modern lifestyle trends really are speaking the right language. Even trends that might initially appear to be a deliberate shift away from the phenomena of this era would hardly be conceivable in their current form without the success of the Internet. With this in mind, “LINK-UP” is the all-encompassing motto that unites each and every one of these trends. As much of a paradox as it may sound, in fact, even those who want to live offline first have to get online to be able to then switch off. Thanks to the latest… read more

Automaton

“automaton” is the term for a machine that can move and do things without being controlled by somebody. “automaton” represents the furnishing style that tries to create a face for the digital world and its achievements.

Going forward, it would seem that people will no longer be the ones subject to moral and emotional judgements. This is down to the fact that computerised machines are becoming more human by the… read more

Bioplanet

“bioplanet” describes how – optimised with the possibilities of the digital age – today’s hot trend of sustainability is reflected in residential interior design.

Even the technological innovations of the digital era in particular have not left these trends unaffected. ”bioplanet” therefore refers to the most up-to-date manifestation of… read more

Instinct

For anyone feeling as though life in the digital age is just too safe, state-of-the-art software can allow them to reach the other side of the digital firewall.

The ideal interior design trend for people like this is “instinct”, whose materials, surfaces and finishing touches offer a piece of the wild unknown within their own four walls. We live in… read more

Reculture

“reculture” stands for the love of the rebirth or recreation of design classics with the help of – or in combination with – the most contemporary digital technology. What has time got to do with all of the beautiful things in life? The answer is that it limits them in two ways – not only in terms of how long they last, but also how long they remain beautiful. In the present digital age, however, this factor has lost much of the significance it held perhaps most strongly of all in the machine age. This is down to the… read more
