Made to Adapt
THE CONCEPTS OF “PERSONALIZED” and “immersive” experiences are at the forefront lately, but the term that should be on every designer’s mind is “adaptable.”
Sleek trends are not always conducive to the frontline of retail spaces, where heavy foot traffic often tramples over fragile designs. Thankfully, adaptability is returning as a key strategy in creating materials/wallcoverings, flooring and surfaces products. These materials are built to last and versatile to ever-changing trends.
That’s not to say these materials must be dull and drab to be adaptable – quite the opposite. After all, part of adaptability is having a timeless design: Bold motifs and bright colorways are paired alongside functional elements meant to endure through renovations, rebranding, crowds and the latest buzzy word.
