Australian Trend Forecast, Australasia’s leading trend forecast group established by the Design Institute of Australia, revealed its four trends of the latest colours, materials and finishes. Australian Trend Forecast Managing Consultant, Kim Chadwick talked about the inspiration and story behind the trends, in particular Industrial Evolution.
“This forecasted trend invites you to journey from the established past along a path to rediscovery. We treasure the strength of old walls and buildings and delight in reclaiming and revivifying them. The texture and grain of history is celebrated – molten patina, time aged timber, the flaws in concrete. This is where we see Cemintel’s Urban Grey, the raw yet soft texture with the undertones of grey is the ideal example of old becoming new,” said Kim Chadwick.
