Future Past takes its cues from steampunk merging with modern design – creating a new version of the old. Deep and decadent traditional hues are made modern with the addition of mustard, pink and purple.
As we move towards the future we look for reassurance from our past. We are drawn to contemporary designs that evoke reassuring memories.
Our reality is one of a digital world where we seek comfort in nostalgic references that ground us in times of uncertainty.
Design explores analogue processes, customising and reinvigorating old techniques with the enhancement of new technology.
