Yard Design at Design Tide Tokyo 2011

WGSN-homebuildlife reports live from Design Tide Tokyo, presenting three emerging trends from the fair:

Fondant pastel shades: These saccharine sweet shades range from chalky through to mid-tones, and are seen across a range of interior products.

Slotted & stacked: Designers are creative and resourceful in their approach to construction, using slot, stack and fold techniques to assemble products.

Transforming furniture: Designers make furniture that is compact, multifunctional and more durable, giving cutomers better value for money.
