We are entering the era of hyperactive interiors

Three key interior design trends for 2023

What is the next step of each transcendent trend in interior design?

At the turn of each year, all of us analysts rush to speculate and predict the evolutionary evolution of the transformation of the environment around us in our daily actions. Interior design has become a nucleus of constant progression, an epicenter of innovation and creativity, from which human beings find new solutions and new aesthetics that suit developing contemporary ways of living.

At the intersection of design, architecture and craftsmanship, the futures laboratories conducted with several international design schools, with professionals and students from more than 90 countries, provide very definite guidelines. We venture to predict the entry into a new era, the era of hyperactive spaces.

The spaces that are being created contain special dimensions that generate stimuli, take care of our health and can calm us down. Designers face the challenge of implementing technological advances and propose spaces that interact directly with people.

Today every office, residence, or public space -restaurant, hotel or store-, should not be a passive space, the new codes dictate that there must be interactivity with the inhabitants or visitors, they are the new ones:





Beyond spaces that generate experiences, spaces that stimulate creativity, imagination or provoke interaction.
