Edge

With Edge we challenge comfort zones with confront zones, as we are on the brink of uncertainty of what stands before us. It is here that we explore the innovation that is born from necessity — daring, adaptable and resilient design. Luxury becomes the ability to choose and it is from this intense drive to survive that one must practice extreme morality, seek sustainable practices and gather indestructible products as their future choices may be limited to none. It is crucial to be armed with streamlined essentials to tune out the external chaos and hone in on the task at hand.

Wonder

Wonder is a manifestation of the clash between the ever-changing awareness of our past, present, and future. In an attempt of hacked escapism, we find comfort in creating an incomprehensible world, one that ironically comes to mimic the things that we once found solace in. Thanks to innovations of AI and VR designers are playing with warped yet conforming shapes, design looks both familiar and completely novel — it’s a sensationalized concoction of rendered dimensions.

Goodness

A communal craving for honest simplicity and wholesome satisfaction drives Goodness. Despite being jaded, worn out, and burnt out, we hold onto optimism and creature comforts to keep our imaginations burning. No longer caring about what’s a guilty pleasure and what’s simply pleasure, our anxious minds just want to settle on what’s good.
