East-meets-west in this visual representation of the subconscious unification of world culture. No matter how far the distance, elements from two parts of the globe are compared and surprisingly unified in design and aesthetic. Moving into a more raw era of design, the importance of artisans and resourcefulness is key and these modern designs beautifully mimic their tribal cousins.
Lidewij Edelkoort is the trend forecaster responsible for Trend Union. Li has proved how cultures are effected by one another in this North Meets South comparison for her online forecasting blog Trend Tablet. She compares a Finnish blonde wooden spoon resembling a Nigerian dark wooden spoon, a Danish stool of organic design mirroring a similar piece from the Ivory Coast, and many more in sync elements of design. These beautifully curated images in Lidewij Edelkoort’s book North Meets South are available for purchase on her website: http://www.edelkoort.com/
