Maker Trend Guide 2015 and beyond

Full of information on materials and techniques

Early signs of new product trends can be found in the new materials and techniques designers are developing. This Maker Trend Guide summarizes the most important developments. For businesses in the interior industry this guide offers information and insights for product ranges for 2015 and beyond.

'Maker Stories' is what Craftscurator calls these developments, and 20 of such stories are told and visualized. From developing materials using bacteria to rethinking basket weaving techniques to 3D printing including imperfections; it can all be found in the guide. Maker Stories are categorized by Style Group, Craftscurator's own identification of consumer preferences, called Inventive, Sensitive and Expressive. For each style group, a page with material, techniques, pattern, as well as a color mood is included.
