Design Trends Identified by Top Design Websites

On May 13th, 2011, PSFK hosted a discussion at Soho House New York about the Future of Design to kick off NY Design Week and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). The editors of some of the top design industry websites talked about what they were looking forward to seeing at the shows, the new crop of designers to watch out for, the industry innovators to watch, and what design ingenuity it would most surprise them to see.

Panelists (from left to right in photo):
Jean Lin, Editor, Otto Design and Architecture
LinYee Yuan, Managing Editor, Core77
Josh Rubin, Founder and Editor in Chief, Cool Hunting
Dave Pinter, Senior Editor, PSFK
The Moderator was Piers Fawkes, President and Founder of PSFK.

Some design trends they identified included open source design, the kick-starter movement, experiential design, transparency in design, the DIY (Do It Yourself) movement, sustainability, and adaptive capacity.
