Already for some seasons bulky, chubby shapes have been an inspiring source for many designers. Perhaps it derives from the current revival of the seventies where chubby, tubular shapes played an important role in interior design. Or from the desire to take a more playful approach to the design process and create products that are functional but also tactile to the eye and touch. Combine for instance bulky looks with soft curves or soft materials to create that playful yet elegant design. Or make small furniture like stools and tables or home decoration items in this style. All these will fit perfectly in the current zeitgeist and will certainly attract the attention of anyone interested in contemporary design. Feel inspired?
