Embracing Materiality in Commercial Interior Design

 

Designers are exploring a range of textures and finishes to add depth and character to commercial interiors. The materials chosen for this year’s designs are as diverse as they are captivating, enhancing the aesthetic appeal and contributing to the overall experience of a space. Hermès Collection Maison 2024 at La Pelota is a prime example of this trend, where raw materials like brick, stone, slate, wood, and compacted earth are arranged in a unique display.

 

Recycled and Sustainable Practices in Commercial Interior Design

 

The innovative use of recycled materials in commercial interior design has been highlighted, with designers finding creative ways to repurpose and reuse materials, reducing waste and minimising the environmental impact of their creations. Brands like Bitossi, with contemporary pieces crafted by designers such as Muller Van Severen, Faye Toogood, Max Lamb, and Formafantasma, are leading the way in sustainable design.

 

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Materials

 

The industry’s commitment to environmental responsibility is evident in the rising use of sustainable and eco-friendly materials in commercial interior design, crucial for the long-term health of our planet and the well-being of those who occupy these spaces. Rive Roshan, Rick Tegelaar, and Umut Yamac are among the esteemed designers who have captivated the senses with their eco-conscious designs.

 

Bold and Expressive Colour Palettes in Commercial Interior Design

 

Commercial interiors are being infused with bold and expressive colour palettes, bringing a new level of vibrancy and energy to the workplace. These colours are chosen to inspire creativity and dynamism. MAD’s collaboration with brands like Google and Kohler showcases how vibrant colours can energize a space.

 

Multifunctional Spaces in Commercial Design

 

Reflecting the dynamic nature of modern lifestyles, multifunctional spaces in commercial design are designed to be adaptable, serving a variety of activities and needs. This versatility is key to the functionality of commercial interiors. The BMW Vision Neue Klasse exhibition during Milan Design Week exemplifies this trend, where the space was transformed to accommodate various forms of interaction²[1].

 

Innovative Lighting Solutions in Commercial Interior Design

 

Lighting design is evolving to become a central component of the overall aesthetic, with innovative solutions that enhance both the mood and functionality of commercial spaces.

Elemental Materiality in Commercial Design

 

Materials that evoke the elements, such as stone, wood, and water, are being used to create a deeper connection with nature in commercial design, fostering a sense of tranquillity and well-being.
