I think 2018 desire focus on generation rent, and creating small footprint, multi-function gear that has a small(ish) price tag but is big on design. Nomadic furniture that establishment rent knows they can take from one home to the next. At the other end of the diminish, I think we’ll be seeing a focus on understated luxury.

Looking back at 2017, my favourite occupation was Tom Dixon’s Multiplex at Milan Design Week. It was as much about the immersive go through as it was about presenting the products, and the experiential elements contextualised his products and strengthened our understanding of their personality. I think it was so relevant at a time when we are make a splash much more emphasis on the importance of experiences and the new understanding of luxury that they impersonate. I loved the bar and the ice cream parlour with perfume-infused ice cream, but if I had to narrow it to one favoured product I’d say it was his London washing up liquid. It was amazingly extravagant, but I loved it and acquisition bargain it.
