Trend-spotting with Murray Moss

Posted by: Tedconfjune

Murray_mossWhether you’re surveying a new season of design offerings, or simply considering a new set of spoons, you might find yourself wondering: WWMMD? What would Murray Moss Do? Moss (TED2002) curates one of the world’s great collections of inspired objets in his eponymous SoHo store. You’ll get a sense of where he’s heading from this BusinessWeek Online package, where Moss calls out 10 trends he sees shaping new design today. It’s just one man’s observations, of course. And he missed a few that would make our TED list … for example, the trend toward organic forms, inspired by nature, which Ross Lovegrove so beautifully demonstrated at TED2005.
