NEW WAVE

A waving trade blows through the design planet. Is it a need for flexibility, malleability or an abstract vision that leads designers to curve their creations? Whatever, we noticed that furniture, lighting, textiles and objects are adorned with curved shapes all over the planet and this is called the Wiggly Trend.

Are the successive lockdowns the origin of open seas and swell among designers? This would explain the serpentine trend at the moment. In 2021, whatever the material used, the furniture curls, the candlesticks meander, the lampshades swirl, the textiles are printed with sinuous lines, the table linen scallops and the sculptures are waving. From France to Australia, the trend is worldwide as you can see below.

This fashion is not new! Already in the forties, Jean Royère, preferred sinuous curves, the 70s saw all his creation bend and the Sottsass years arched, not to mention Alvar Aalto whose own name means "wave" in Finnish, form that he used to mark and sign his creations.
